Two beach goers confirmed dead and over 13 injured when a lightning strike hit Venice Beach by the Venice Beach Pier today. A scuba diver was struck, and was unconscious and not breathing when rescued. He was revived at scene and transported as others were treated at the beach. As I spoke with the LAFD Battalion Chief he said they were searching for one additional body in the water. That person was pulled from the water and administered CPR. It is not clear if that person or the scuba diver have fallen victim to their injuries. More to come.
