Woman killed by falling tree in Kansas

29 year old Kimberly Hurt was killed when a large tree fell on her. Hurt was helping her father and sister remove a tree at her family residence where she lived. The family had planned to drop a tree so they removed a fence in the direction which they expected the tree to fall. The tree did not fall in the direction the family had planned and struck Ms. Hurt in the head. She died instantly according to police reports. The tree also damaged a fence, shed, and took down power lines. No further investigation is planned into what was described as a family project that got away from them.
