A visitor to Yellowstone National Park was killed by a falling tree Monday. The 36-year old man from Taiwan was with a group hiking on a trail north of Old Faithful when he left the trail to walk up a tree-covered slope. A lodgepole pine tree fell and struck him in the head. He died at the scene. Rangers say it was windy at the time and the tree was standing but fire killed from the park’s 1988 fires. The man’s name has not been released and the incident is being investigated by the National Park Service
