(JACKSON, WY) – A German woman was hospitalized after a tree branch fell on her in Grand Teton National Park Sunday afternoon. Park officials say a wind storm knocked down more than 100 trees in the Colter Bay Campground, with some striking vehicles. The 30-year-old victim suffered life-threatening injuries when a 40-foot branch fell on top of her. She was later airlifted to EIRMC in Idaho Falls. Her condition has not been released.
