Utah Girl Dies in Freak Trampoline Accident
A 9-year-old Southern Utah girl died on Wednesday from injuries sustained when a gust of wind blew the trampoline off the ground and through the air for nearly 150 feet. Oaklee Sidwell was playing with other friends on the trampoline in Panguitch, Utah, when the winds started to pick up.
The kids on the trampoline were in the process of getting off, however, Sidwell was the last child on the trampoline before the strong gust occurred. According to reports, the trampoline was properly assembled and anchored.
Sidwell was taken to a nearby hospital and then transported to a hospital in Salt Lake City where she died this past Wednesday.
