Woman struck by lightning during Country Thunder still in intensive care

A woman who was struck by lightning at the Country Thunder music festival in Twin Lakes remains in serious condition.

WLS-TV says that Brittney Prehn is recovering at the intensive care unit at Chicago's Loyola University Medical Center.

Prehn, 22, was not initially identified after she was discovered at 12:30 a.m. Friday morning by deputies, unconscious but still breathing.

WLS reports that this is the second time a member of Prehn's family has been hit by lightning this month. They say Dawson Fuller, a relative, was also struck on July 4.
