EAGLE, Colo. — A woman was killed during a tragic boating accident at Reudi Reservoir Friday afternoon.

Deputies responded to the reservoir just after 3:30 p.m. after reports that a female had been struck in the head.

On Saturday, the Eagle County coroner confirmed that 21-year-old Haley Rinaldi of Basalt died at the scene.

Investigators said Rinaldi was being pulled on a tube behind a boat, when the tow rope snapped and the metal connector came back and struck her in the head.

Reudi Reservoir is about 200 miles west of Denver and 15 miles east of Basalt.
