Following a lightning strike near the White House the previous evening, two persons were declared dead and two more were in serious condition on Friday, according to US capital police.

Before 7:00 p.m. (2300 GMT) on Thursday, lightning struck Lafayette Square, a small park across from the White House, inflicting “critical life-threatening injuries” on two men and two women, according to a statement from Washington’s fire and emergency department.

All of the victims were transferred to nearby hospitals, but the Metropolitan Police said on Friday morning that two of them, Donna Mueller, 75, and James Mueller, 76, both of Janesville, Wisconsin, had been declared dead.
According to investigators, the other two individuals are still in severe condition.

The Biden administration was “saddened by the awful loss of life,” according to a White House spokesman.

Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre added in a statement, “We are praying for those still battling for their lives.

According to a statement gathered by Stechitegist media, that is made available on social media by fire and emergency services department spokesman Vito Maggiolo, US Secret Service and park police raced to aid the four after witnessing the strike.

Multiple ambulances and at least one fire engine with flashing lights were visible in pictures shared by the department on social media while they were working at the scene.

Witness David Root reported hearing a “horrific blast” to NBC.

He was reported to have said, “I just couldn’t believe it.” Was bizarre. In my entire life, I have never witnessed anything like this.

He claimed that when the lightning struck the park, he had been hiding under a tree.

He claimed that the people “weren’t moving,” so he and others rushed over to offer assistance.

According to The Washington Post, the four were discovered around 100 feet away from the statue of former US President Andrew Jackson, which stands in the square’s middle.

A powerful thunderstorm that made landfall in the American capital on Thursday night included the strike.

Maggiolo told the Post that trees are not secure locations.

“Anyone who seeks refuge under a tree is in an extremely risky situation.”
