    A Kamloops woman was killed by a tree while getting firewood with her husband, she died at the scene. RCMP accompanied her husband home to tell the two children, be careful out there. I tried to post the news article , wouldn't let me copyright I guess. .

    You should be able to post a link to the story. There should be no violation of copyright that way.

    I assume this is it.

    Horrible. I can't imagine. As a topic for discussion, though, this is the first female I've heard of being injured (mortally so, in her case) while felling. I wonder if she was familiar with the process or if this was a unique situation where she was along when generally she would not be.
