A woman died Saturday afternoon while being pulled on a tube behind a boat at Ruedi Reservoir.
Haley Rinaldi, 21, of Basalt died from head injuries sustained in the accident, according to a press release from Eagle County Communications Department.
Witnesses say Rinaldi was being pulled on a tube behind the boat when the accident occurred, according to authorities. The tow rope between the tube and the boat snapped, causing the metal connector to strike her in the head. The incident occurred at approximately 3:30 p.m.
The coroner has ruled the manner of death as accidental. An official cause of death will be determined after an autopsy.
