Lisa LambeUTAH – A 55-year-old woman died from blunt force trauma injuries she suffered while taking part in the Sundance Mountain Resort ZipTour.

Lisa Lambe and her husband were were vacationing in Utah and decided to take the zip line tour at the Sundance Mountain Resort on Friday.

The attraction consists of five different zip lines and participants can reach speeds of 65 mph. Lambe failed to reach the end of the final zip line and was found suspended in her harness, unconscious and not breathing.

She had suffered serious injuries, including bruises and broken bones along the right side of her body, Utah County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Spencer Cannon said. She was taken to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.

Wind gusts reached 52 mph that day, so it is believed Lambe may have struck a tree on the way down the final leg of the tour. I watched a video on Youtube that someone took while riding all five of the zip lines, and at around the 3:32 mark he does zip through some trees before sailing over a parking lot.

The operators of the tour do have participants sign a Release of Liability before they can ride the zip line, but it also states they will close if winds are in excess of 30 mph. The zip line tour was inspected by the manufacturer the following day and deemed to be safe to reopen to the public.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, and we’re cooperating completely with the Utah County Sheriff’s Office investigation,” said Czar Johnson, director of mountain operations at the resort.

Investigators said they would be out there today to try and determine exactly what actually caused Lambe’s death.
