KIRKWOOD, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a tree fell across two campers in a Pennsylvania campground, killing a 10-year-old girl in one of the vehicles.

LNP newspapers (https://bit.ly/2puQrM1 ) reports that emergency crews n Lancaster County were called to Oma’s Family Campground in Colerain Township at about 8:30 a.m. Sunday.

Quarryville fire chief Joel Neff said emergency personnel had to cut the tree and the camper to reach the trapped girl, but found her unconscious and not breathing. Neff called it “a freak accident.”

Dr. Steven Diamantoni, the Lancaster County coroner, said he believed the girl was from Perry County and she was the only one inside the camper. He said he believed her mother was sitting outside when the tree came down.
