Coincidence? Synchromysticism strikes again? Tridents abound. And Neptune's kingdom is involved again.
The parents of Notre Dame High School graduate Nick Fagnano confirmed Monday morning that their son was killed after lightning struck while he was in the water at Venice Beach.Publisher/author Adam Parfrey has written me to pass along a few syncs about this Venice/Venice Beach, California location.
Fagnano, an only child, was a 2012 graduate of Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks and had also attended Santa Barbara City College and Santa Monica City College. He had been living with his parents in downtown Los Angeles since December and was about to enter USC as a junior, where he was planning on studying urban development, his parents said.

"The Feral House logo is trident-shaped [seen below]. The most recent book we published under the Process Media imprint is about the strange and defunct amusement park on the Venice/Santa Monica border called Pacific Ocean Park," writes Parfrey.
The climactic scene in the final episode of the television series The Fugitive ("The Judgment, Part 2)" was shot at Pacific Ocean Park. Filmed on location just prior the park's closure in the fall of 1967, the park's "Mahi, Mahi" ride tower was the setting for the dramatic face off between Dr. Richard Kimble (David Janssen) and the fictional one-armed man.
The episode of the Twilight Zone series titled "In Praise of Pip," starring Jack Klugman and Billy Mumy, was also filmed there.
An episode of The Man From U.N.C.L.E. was filmed in the park.
The park was the setting of an episode of the television series Route 66 (Season 2, Episode 29 "Between Hello and Goodbye") which aired May 11, 1962. Martin Milner's character Tod is shown working at King Neptune's Courtyard, and guest star Susan Oliver is depicted riding the Ocean Skyway.
An episode of The Invaders, entitled "The Pit", televised on ABC in January, 1967, has scenes shot at Pacific Ocean Park after the park had closed.

The lightning bolt reportedly hit the water at around 2:20 pm Pacific time. Fagnano's body was found about 2:45 pm.

About 2:45 p.m. Eastern, Sunday, July 27, 2014, a 1972 Piper Cherokee lost a wheel, damaged a wing and smashed its propeller shortly after making a distress call to Venice Municipal Airport. Caspersen Beach, where the plane crashed, is just south of the airport, at the southern tip of the island of Venice, Florida. It landed on a man and his daughter.
Reportedly, Irizarry's wife Rebecca was treated for cardiac arrest at Venice Regional Bayfront Health. The couple and their children were vacationing in Venice, Florida, for their 9th anniversary. Media accounts say they were from Georgia, but Irizarry's Facebook page notes he is from and lives in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.
Irizarry is a respelling of Basque Irizarri, a variant of the Basque surname Irizar meaning "ancient village," from iri "village" + zar "old."
Uninjured from the plane crash are 57-year-old Karl Kokomoor, the pilot, and his passenger David Theen, 60, both of Englewood, Florida.
