Broken Tree Caused Woman's Death on Sundance ZipTour
Utah County Sheriff's investigators say a South Carolina woman died on the Sundance zip line after she struck a tree. They say they found a tree in close proximity to the zip line that was broken near the top. Investigators recovered evidence from the tree that shows Lisa Lambe, age 55, came into contact with it. Lambe died Friday, May 20, the first day the Sundance ZipTour was open for the summer season. Investigators believe high winds caused the tree to break and fall into her path. The Sundance Resort website indicated the zip line had shut down Friday, May 20th, due to inclement weather. The Utah County Sheriff's office says Lambe's death is an unfortunate accident and there is no evidence of criminal wrong doing in the case.
