LIGHTNING STRIKE FATALITY
For 2nd day in row, lightning blamed in death of visitor to Rocky Mountain National Park

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, July 13, 2014 3:09 PM EDT
ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo.


For the second day in a row, lightning has been blamed in the death of a visitor at Rocky Mountain National Park.

Park spokeswoman Kyle Patterson says officials were notified late Saturday afternoon of four people being struck by lightning near Trail Ridge Road. The four were rushed to a hospital, but 52-year-old Gregory Cardwell, of Scottsbluff, Nebraska, died of his injures.

On Friday afternoon, park officials said lightning killed one woman and injured seven other people. That also occurred near Trail Ridge, which is the nation's highest continuously paved road.

Patterson says they are the park's first lightning fatalities since 2000.

A park news release identified the woman who died Friday as 42-year-old Rebecca R. Teilhet, of Yellow Springs, Ohio.
