UPDATE: Woman Dies When Tree Falls On Her in Eden Prairie

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) – The woman who died after a tree fell on her in Eden Prairie has been identified as 56-year-old Nina Mackay.

Her family released a statement Saturday remembering her as a wonderful wife and loving mother.

Mackay died Friday evening while walking her two dogs on a city trail in Miller Park. The basswood tree fell on her and pinned her. She died at the scene.

Police say the tree was about 90 years old and 2 1/2 feet in diameter. The tree appeared healthy, and officials are investigating why it fell. There were winds of up to 23 mph in the area at the time.

Mackay’s family says her passions were fitness and her dogs, and that she died doing what she loved.
