True, I have not seen enough details. I hope she caught her heal side edge, slamed her head and tumbled after.

It really does not matter, it is a tragedy anyway that it happened. As a father with young kids, it would just make me feel better if there was some way I could point to some small thing and say "if she was wearing a helmet...."
