That's a real shame. So young. All that's left is sincere condolences and the hope that she went quick and never saw it coming.

It probably wouldn't have applied so much in this case, but people siting tents need to remember to look at what's above and around them just as much as they look at the ground, especially in high winds. Trees and snags are called "widow makers" for a very good reason.
