A 29-year-old Los Angeles resident was identified Saturday as the third person killed by one lightning strike which reached near the White House on Thursday night.
Brooks Lambertson was in Washington DC on business, his company City National Bank said in a press release. He lived in downtown Los Angeles and has been the company’s VP of Sponsorship Activation since 2019. Before that, he worked for the LA Clippers.
Lambertson was from Folsom, a city in Sacramento County. He attended California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
In a podcast appearance with Cal Poly professor Dr. Brian Greenwood recorded in 2019, Lambertson said he had an older sister and described himself as a “sports hog.”
A husband and wife from Wisconsin celebrating more than five decades of marriage were also killed by lightning and another woman was hospitalized with serious injuries.
Authorities have not disclosed how the people were injured, other than to say they were seriously injured by lightning.
