A tragic accident has occurred at a wedding in Penn Park, Southern California.
Disaster struck when a bridal party lined up next to a eucalyptus tree to get pictures taken when the ‘humongous’ tree fell on top of them.
Witnesses say they heard a loud crack before the 100ft tree plummeted on top of the party.
One woman was tragically killed and a four-year-old girl was listed in critical condition due to head trauma.
In an official statement, Whittier Police said:
"The injured were transported to local area hospitals where it has since been reported one of the victims has succumbed to their injuries.
Another, described only as a 4-year-old female, is in critical condition as a result of head trauma."
Footage from the scene shows authorities desperately trying to cut through the branches with chainsaws.
Witness Gilbert Duran said on Facebook:
"It’s nuts. This tree is humongous. I can’t believe this.
They’re taking pictures under this tree and all of a sudden it just collapsed. We just watched some little kids go flat underneath that tree.
I hope they’re going to be OK. Pray for these families at Penn Park in Whittier."
Our thoughts go out to all those involved.
