Multiple Fans Struck By Lightning At Tour Championship

At least five people were injured after lightning struck a tree at the PGA Tour Championship golf tournament in Atlanta, police and the organizers said on Saturday.

Fans walk past lightning damage to a tree during a suspension in play due to inclement weather during the third round of the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club on August 24, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Atlanta Police spokesman James H. White III said four adults and one female juvenile had sought shelter beneath a tree. Five of those fans were then transported by ambulance to a local hospital.

Rahul Gandhi too said that he was "sorry to hear" about his demise and offered his condolences to his family. Arun Jaitley was born in 1952 to Ratan Prabha and Maharaj Kishen Jaitley.

The fans have been taken to the hospital and none of their injuries are believed to be life-threatening. A huge thunderstorm delayed the U.S. Women's Open in May, where a huge lightning strike drilled a tree next to the No. 11 green.

Due to the circumstances, the third round was suspended for the day, with play set to resume at 8 a.m. ET on Sunday. The three only completed five holes on Saturday, however, before the delay sent them off the course.

Ambulances drove past the clubhouse at East Lake Golf Club on Saturday afternoon, heading toward an area where the massive bolt of lightning shook the grounds at 4:45 p.m. ET.
