California Lightning Storm Strikes 14 People And Leaves 1 Dead
A freak lightning storm battered a California beach, killing a 20-year-old man with a blast of electricity and injuring 13 more along the coast.
Beachgoers watched a big storm roll across the horizon, but had no idea it was headed their way and would zap about a dozen people along the Venice Beach Boardwalk.
When the lightning hit at about 2:20 p.m., it sounded like "just one big explosion," Ruben Tumbaga, 36, told the Daily News.
"Right when I saw it hit the ground, I closed my eyes and flinched," Tumbaga, of Long Beach, Calif., said.

The amateur videos emerged as a Syrian human rights group reported 1,600 deaths in just 10 days this month.
The latest images come from an area taken over by the militant terrorist group the Islamic State, which recently changed its name from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS. The group is known for killing dozens of people at a time and beheading some.
At least three videos posted on YouTube by different people show the grisly scene at a roundabout in the city of Reqqa, where Islamic State militants have been carrying out public executions, crucifixions and other acts decided by its Sharia, or Islamic law, court.
A narrator in one of the videos says the bodies are of Syrian soldiers who were killed by Islamic State fighters.
The videos surfaced online along with news that Islamic State took over the Syrian army's 17th Division headquarters, which was considered the Syrian regime's last remaining military base in Reqqa.
