struck and killed by lightening; when the lightening struck

The opening sentence of this article ("Woman killed in mountaintop proposal" on Canoe online on June 8, 2010) contains a misspelling of lightning. One might think it's a typo, but three paragraphs later the writer attempts the word again

and again sticks an E where it doesn't belong. Zero-for-two on spelling lightning in an article about a woman getting struck by lightning.
