Four people in the United States are seriously injured after being struck by lightning near the White House.
Two men and two women were taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries, an emergency services spokesman said.
The victim was found near a tree in Washington’s Lafayette Square, a popular seven-acre park just north of the White House.
The tree was just a few meters away from the fence surrounding the presidential palace and offices.
U.S. Secret Service and U.S. Park Police personnel stationed at the park immediately went to the victims’ aid.
