Lincoln County New Mexico sheriff's deputies say an El Paso woman in her early 20s was killed Saturday in a ski accident in Mescalero.
Family members confirm the woman is Jacqueline Caballero, who was on a ski trip with her boyfriend at Ski Apache this weekend.
Caballero's brother says his sister was skiing fast down the slope when she hit a tree, causing a brain hemorrhage.
Caballero died shortly thereafter with her boyfriend by her side.
An off-duty paramedic was nearby and tried to revive the woman but his attempts were unsuccessful.
"My angel was taken too soon," Caballero's mother told ABC-7.
