ESTES PARK, Colo. (WKRC) -- An Ohio man whose wife was killed by lightning said he doesn't remember hearing or feeling anything when the bolt hit.
   
They were hiking Friday in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.  42-year-old Rebecca Teilhet's husband said he woke up to see a friend trying to revive her.  The woman from Yellow Springs was one of two people killed by lightning in two days in the popular park.
   
Mary Iverson and her family were at a nearby lookout, "It just felt like something hit me in the back of the head and I jolted forward."

Another witness said, "I lost my vision and hearing for a solid 10 seconds before it started coming back."
   
The Ohio couple were on a high-elevation trail as was a man killed Saturday.  Theirs were the first lightning deaths in the park since 2000.
