A 51-year-old woman died on Saturday while watching her daughter participate in an Impact Trainings ropes course in Oakley.
On Saturday, Feb. 11, deputies responded to Weber Canyon Road to assist medical personnel after a woman reportedly went into cardia arrest, according to the Summit County Sheriff's Office.
The woman and her husband were reportedly with a group of about 10, who were completing the course, according to a representative of Impact Trainings. She did not participate in any of the activities, he said.
Medical personnel performed life-save techniques before a medical helicopter transported the woman to Park City Hospital. A report states she later passed away at the hospital.
Detective Kacey Bates said the woman's name has not been released. No information was available about where the woman was from or who she was with at the time.
"It is an active investigation at this time pending the results from the Medical Examiner's office," Bates said.
