A Skagit County woman died when a tree fell on her Sunday morning.

The Sheriff’s Office said deputies responded to a call to the 1400 block of Butler Creek Road at about 10:30 a.m.

A crew had been hired to fall a large fir tree and the tree did not fall in the planned direction.

The victim, a 62-year-old woman, had been standing outside watching the falling of the tree and she was unable to move in time and was killed by the tree.
