Lightning struck 13 people at a popular beach in Los Angeles and another man golfing on Catalina Island, leaving two critically injured as rare summer thunderstorms swept through Southern California on Sunday, authorities said.
A 15-year-old was among those hit by lightning at Venice Beach around 2:30 p.m., city fire spokeswoman Katherine Main said. Four people were treated at the scene and the rest were taken to hospitals, where one was listed in grave condition and another in critical condition, she said.
Other fire officials said most of those taken to hospitals were mainly shaken up and were expected to recover. Some appear to have been in the water and others on the sand and the beach’s famed boardwalk.
