MANCHESTER, Md. (AP) - A tree fell at a summer camp during a strong thunderstorm, killing one child and injuring six others.
The Carroll County Sheriff’s office says that a storm struck about 7 p.m. last night when about 114 children ages 7 to 12 were attending an event at a hillside pavilion in the River Valley Ranch camp in Manchester.
As the storm approached, the children were brought to a nearby shelter on the hill.
Authorities say the tree fell on them when they were en route, injuring seven children.
