SAN DIEGO (AP) - Authorities say a 200-pound prop fell onto the stage at a San Diego children’s theater, slightly injuring three kids.

Fire and police say a prop tree collapsed Tuesday during a production at the San Diego Junior Theatre in Balboa Park.

The children, who are 9 to 11 years old, were taken to hospitals but their injuries aren’t considered serious.

The accident occurred shortly after noon during the opening number of a show called “The Magic Treehouse: Dinosaurs Before Dark.”

Fire officials say two children were sitting on the 8- to 10-foot tree-like platform when it fell onto a third child. Stage hands lifted it off.

The performance was canceled.
