A woman playing Frisbee was killed after strong winds tore a large tree out of the ground, sending it crashing down on top of her.


She had been visiting with a group of friends in a Frisbee park in Canmore when a sudden storm hit the area Saturday evening.


The intense winds quickly uprooted several trees. The group was heading down a marked trail when a tree fell across it, striking her.


Canmore RCMP are now investigating the accident.


The woman’s name and age is not being released at the request of her family.
