Fox Weather reports:

A couple from Wisconsin and a 29-year-old man were killed, and a woman remains critically injured after lightning struck near the White House Thursday evening, sending police scrambling to help victims in Lafayette Park.

A spokesperson for the District of Columbia Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department said uniformed agents from the U.S. Secret Service and U.S. Park Police were first on the scene and provided life-saving aid until paramedics arrived.

Two of the victims were identified as James Mueller, 76, and Donna Mueller, 75, of Janesville, Wisconsin, according to FOX 5 DC. A third is a 29-year-old man who police said will be identified pending next of kin notification.

Lafayette Park is a popular site for tourists who visit Washington to take pictures outside the White House. Firefighters say the victims were found near a tree by the fence that surrounds the White House Complex, not far from Pennsylvania Avenue.

Maybe this is a sign of how dangerous the Joe Biden presidency is. His policies have negatively affected almost everyone in the country, and now these poor people are killed just outside the White House. Do you take this as a sign?
