Lightning strikes near six people at Sea World

[Updated at 9:36 p.m.] None of the six people appeared to have taken a direct strike, the fire department told CNN affiliate WESH. Five adults were taken to an area hospital for evaluation. One person was treated at the scene and released, according to WESH.

Six people were struck by lightning at Sea World's Discovery Cove
in Florida this afternoon, an Orange County Fire Rescue spokeswoman said.

    Psalm 23

    The Divine Shepherd

    A Psalm of David.
    1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
    2 He makes me lie down in green pastures;
    he leads me beside still waters;*
    3 he restores my soul.*
    He leads me in right paths*
    for his name’s sake.

    4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley,*
    I fear no evil;
    for you are with me;
    your rod and your staff—
    they comfort me.

    5 You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies;
    you anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
    6 Surely* goodness and mercy* shall follow me
    all the days of my life,
    and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
    my whole life long.*

    The writing in this article is a perversion of no-fat Hemingway style and what was once proper journalistic space saving as taught in today's pathetic American public schools and universities.
    It also indicates America's hiring practices.

    And this lightning is news worthy CNN? Why? If it struck and killed the wet backs after their swim or climb from the wall then that would be both newsworthy and marvelous.

    Funny that "Helen Hull" mentions walls. Most do not realize this, but more people have been killed along San Diego's wall than were killed along Berlin's wall. Wall's don't work. Laws, and the constant enforcement of said laws would work, if ever given a try.
