    GETTYSBURG, Pa.,None - A couple from Westmoreland County was hit by lightning Sunday morning in Gettysburg.

    Marisue Morgan, and her husband Randy Lee, were participants in a Civil War re-enactment when a bolt of lightning hit the tent they were sitting in.

    Marisue said the lightning burned a hole through her sweater. She also said the lightning burned her left arm.

    "It was unbearable," Marisue said. "I lost the hearing in my right ear for a while."

    "I felt everything," Randy Lee said. "Like I was being electrocuted, you know, going through my body."

    The Morgans were treated at a Gettysburg hospital.

    Despite the scare this year, they said they still plan on returning for next year's re-enactments.
