The victim who was killed by lightning on Venice Beach has now been identified as 21 year old Nick Fagnano. He was a baseball player and former Catholic prep high school graduate. He was swimming in the ocean around 2:20pm on Sunday when the bolt hit the water. Mary Fagnano, his mother, said, “There was so much commotion when the lightning struck on the beach, he was not one of those recovered in the first response. His friends were looking frantically for him, couldn’t find him. Half an hour after lightning struck, his body was found about 50 feet out.”
