A 67-year-old woman died after several feet of snow fell off the roof of a Casper Mountain house and trapped her Monday, according to the Natrona County Sheriff's Office.

The woman, who was not identified in the office's announcement, and a man were clearing snow off opposite sides of the roof when the man heard snow crashing down, according to the release. The man found the woman buried and called 911.

First responders arrived at about 2:54 p.m. Monday and dug in the snow for 30 minutes before locating the woman. They attempted life-saving measures and then the woman was taken to Wyoming Medical Center, where she later died as a result of injuries from the incident.

Sheriff's office deputies and medical personnel were among those who responded to the 911 call.
