On Wednesday, July 14 a George Floyd mural was destroyed by lightning strike in Toledo, Ohio.
A mural that was painted last year for George Floyd collapsed after being hit by lightning, according to witnesses.
Pictures circulating on social media showed that police had subsequently taped off the area, where the pile of bricks that formed the artwork remained.
According to WTVG, the building’s owner was already working on cleaning up the rubble and pulling down the remainder of the mural.
As reported on Fox News, Hugh Koogan, one of the City of Toledo’s building inspectors said that the wall was also showing signs of bowing in the center, “It was just age. It just came away. It happens to the older buildings.”
Floyd died last year in Minneapolis, Minnesota after trying to use a counterfeit $20. The officer who was charged with his death was sentenced to 25 years in prison earlier this year. Be sure to check out our article on this topic.
For the deep thinkers and religious types, was this more than an old building his by lightning? Was a higher power letting people know they need to stop worshipping idols?
