Three people have died in Washington D.C. after a lightning strike on Thursday, according to D.C. Metropolitan Police.
The two who died have been identified as couple James Mueller, 76, and Donna Mueller, 75, both of Janesville, Wisconsin.
Friday afternoon, police said a 29-year-old man died from his injuries. His name is being withheld pending family notification.

The lightning strike hit Lafayette Park, which sits directly across the street from the White House, Vito Maggiolo, a spokesperson for D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services, said in a news conference Thursday evening.
Here’s one takeaway from Reuters that probably won’t surprise you:

“Climate warning”? For the climate change cult in the media the mantra is “always be closing!”
No it doesn’t 🤦🏻♀️ https://t.co/lZV6cXd09N

Lightning strikes hardly ever happened until the invention of the internal combustion engine — it’s just a fact!
The warning that pretending lightning conforms to your unscientific shrieking means you’re not serious journalists.

Or, it’s lightning in the summer in DC. I grew up there, it happens.

There is no natural phenomenon that the lib media won’t be willing to report is caused by “climate change.”
If this ain’t propaganda then what is? https://t.co/TrPuz6UUaA

Frankly we’re a little surprised that NPR didn’t come up with that take before Reuters did.
Oh almighty Bidenus, god of Climate, show us thy mercy as we make an offering of plastic unto thee. https://t.co/YCpwgRJAzS

Is it too late for the Dems to change the title of the “Inflation Reduction Act” to the “Lightning Reduction Act”?
