GROVELAND, Calif. (AP) - A group says a 21-year-old worker was killed when a large oak tree fell at a summer camp near Yosemite National Park.
The Jewish Federation of Silicon Valley, which provides scholarships for children to attend Camp Tawonga, identified the worker on Wednesday as Annais Rittenberg.
In an email sent to parents, the federation said no children were harmed.
Four adults were injured and treated at area hospitals after the tree fell near the campfire circle, taking down power lines.
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 the Stanislaus National Forest.
