Woman Dies from Tree Collapse

August 4, 2007--Posted at 2:20 pm CDT

HARDY- A Piggott woman who was camping at the Hardy Camper Park Friday night is dead after a tree limb fell on top of her.

32 year old Heather Marie Boles was camping with her mother, father, and 5 year old son in a tent.

At around 6:00 a.m. on Saturday, a large limb from a pecan tree broke, falling on another tree, and struck the tent, causing it to collapse.

Fellow campers assisted Boles until Hardy First Responders and the Spring River Ambulance arrived on the scene.

Boles was transported by ambulance to the Fulton County Hospital in Salem, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
