Four adults injured after tree falls near Yosemite
July 03, 2013, 05:00 AM The Associated Press
SONORA — Sheriff’s officials say four adults are injured and one is unaccounted for after a tree fell at a summer camp near Yosemite National Park.

Authorities received calls on Wednesday about the mishap at Camp Tawonga in rural Tuolumne County.

Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Jim Oliver says the tree took down power lines but did not fall on a building. No children were injured.

Oliver did not know the severity of the injuries to the adult staff members who were taken to hospitals.

Sonora Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Gail Witzelsteiner said the hospital received two women ages 20 and 21 with minor injuries.

There are about 300 campers and 150 staff at the facility that offers sessions for students in 2nd grade through 10th grade.

The camp is located on 160 acres in the community of Groveland in Stanislaus National Forest.
