July 12 (Reuters) - A lightning strike on Saturday killed a man in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, a day after another strike killed a woman who had been out on a hike.

Four people were injured in Saturday's strike, and eight were hurt on Friday, officials said in a news release. Park spokeswoman Kyle Patterson identified the woman killed on Friday as Rebecca R. Teilhet, 42, of Yellow Springs, Ohio, who had been hiking with her husband and a friend.

The victim in Saturday's incident was not identified. The people were struck by lightening at Rainbow Curve, where visitors often gather to watch for rainbows after rainstorms. (Reporting by Sharon Bernstein; Editing by Dan Grebler)
