The National Weather Service said high winds blew the roof off a baseball dugout at the Brillo Miller Sports Complex in Rockwood onto a woman and her adult son.
Both were taken to the hospital. Pamela Simpson, 60, died following the incident. Her son, a 33-year-old man, was transported to a Knoxville area hospital and later released.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with those individuals and their families,” the Rockwood Police said.
The NWS Morristown had initially said the injured person was a child but later identified by the City of Rockwood as an adult.
