Woman Killed in Tragic Zip Lining Accident


A 55-year-old woman has died during a tragic zip lining accident in Utah during her stay at the Sundance Mountain Resort. The fatal zip lining accident occurred last weekend on May 20, 2016, during the early evening in Provo Canyon. The Utah County Sheriff’s Office confirmed the South Carolina woman died from blunt-force trauma while participating in the Zip Tour excursion. Investigators were able to recover evidence revealing high winds caused a tree limb to break and struck the female as she was riding on the zip-line. The woman was near the end of the zip-line when she sustained serious internal injuries. No one witnessed what happened, only found the woman suspended from her harness, unconscious and not breathing. She was brought to the ground to be treated and rushed to a Provo hospital where she was pronounced dead.

In almost any fatal accident, a person or entity can be held responsible for a victim’s damages. The responsible party is considered legally liable for a victim’s harm if they are found negligent.
