Heather McNamara was visiting the Lookout Heights Civic club to decorate for a Saturday wedding. Heather was a bridesmaid for the wedding, and was sitting beneath a canopy along with the maid of honor, Rebecca Wright. A large tree on a nearby hillside crashed down suddenly, collapsing on the canopy and pinning both Heather and Rebecca.
Heather McNamara was tragically pronounced dead at the scene after being removed from under the tree by emergency crews. Rebecca Wright was rushed to a hospital in critical condition after the accident. The tree appeared to be an ash tree over a foot in diameter that was completely dead. The accident remains under investigation at this time to determine cause and liability.
“Sadly, there are no words that can comfort all family members and friends affected by this tragic accident,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all those involved.”
