White House Lightning Attack Leaves 3 Dead

A couple was recently killed instantly after being struck by lightning outside the White House. They had been happily married for more than 50 years and were Wisconsin natives.

A second person perished in the lightning strike on Friday night. One more was taken to the hospital.

Death at the White House

Donna Mueller, 75, and James Mueller, 76, were both natives of Janesville, Wisconsin. On Thursday, when an unexpected lightning strike hit them, they were declared dead. The function was held next to Lafayette Park, which is situated outside the Attack Leaves 3 Dead complex.

A male victim who was almost 30 years old was the third. After enduring pain for a day, he was pronounced dead. A woman was the injured victim number four. The cops didn’t disclose much about their name or current situation.

Authorities also didn’t say anything. Just the fact that they were critically injured as a result of the lightning strike. Additionally, no details on how their injuries occurred were disclosed.

The Mullers

Michelle McNett, a niece of the Muellers, reported that the pair were commemorating their 56th wedding anniversary. The couple has five children as well as ten grandkids. They had a strong focus on family. Everyone seems to be in a state of shock right now and is kind of asking for seclusion. Michelle spoke to the media.

James Mueller ran his own company after retiring as a contractor. In Wisconsin, Donna Mueller, a retired teacher, was employed at a nearby furniture store. Why the couple chose to spend their holiday in the political center is still a mystery. Michelle, though, noted that Donna “was a perpetual learner.”

Their niece claimed that they were also quite “religious.”

The Secret Service agents and park staff members were present when the lightning struck. Additionally, they did everything they could to provide the victims with first assistance. Around 7 o’clock, medical assistance arrived in the park to transport all seriously injured people to the hospital.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, “We are devastated by the unfortunate loss of life after the lightning strike in Lafayette Park.” “Our prayers are with those still battling for their lives, and our hearts are with the families who lost loved ones.”
