TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVO) – An Ohio painting devoted to George Floyd has imploded after it was supposedly struck by lightning Tuesday.
Police in Toledo affirmed that an electrical discharge struck the structure and caused the part of divider enhanced with the enormous painting to implode, decreasing it to rubble, WTOL announced.
Floyd, 46, was killed by Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin in 2020. Chauvin was indicted for homicide and condemned last month to 22 1/2 years in jail. Floyd’s passing started overall fights and calls for change in policing in the U.S.
The painting was painted in July 2020 by craftsman David Ross. He told sister station WJW that he is hoping to do another painting.
The city of Toledo said it is intending to make another wall painting and will track down another area for the craftsmanship.
