A 10-year-old girl died after after a tree fell across two campers at a Lancaster County campground.


The Perry County girl was asleep inside of her family’s camper at the Oma’s Family Campground in Colerain Township about 8:35 a.m. on Sunday when the tree fell, killing her, LancasterOnline reported. Her mother was sitting outside at the time.

The campground is about two miles from the Chester County border.





Rescue crews had to cut the tree to get to the girl, who was unconscious and not breathing when they reached her. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The girl’s name was not released. No other injuries were reported.

Authorities, who called the incident a freak accident, are investigating what caused the tree to fall, the story reported.

“From the outside, the tree looked fine, but once it broke off you could see dead areas in the center,” Quarryville Fire Chief Joel Neff told the website.
