CAMBRIDGE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Authorities say a suburban Detroit woman has died after a tree fell on a tent while she was camping at a state park in Lenawee County.

The Daily Telegram of Adrian reports (http://bit.ly/1ddAvik ) 39-year-old Mary Hickling of Lincoln Park died after the tree fell Saturday night at Hayes State Park in Cambridge Township, about 60 miles southwest of Detroit.

Police say Hickling's two children, ages 7 and 11, weren't injured. Her husband was at the campsite at the time and also wasn't injured.

Several campers rendered first aid and helped clear away tree debris. Hickling was pronounced dead Sunday at a hospital.

Hayes State Park manager Jim O'Brien says the tree had "no signs of problems" before it fell. The state Department of Natural Resources is investigating.
