Neff told Lancaster Online that the incident was “a freak accident.”
Officials did not say why the tree fell. Connie Masse, theh owner of Oma's Family Campground, told WPMT that the tree had ants inside.
“You come camping to enjoy, relax and, you know, just unwind,” she told the news station. “You never expect something like this to happen.”
Neff told Lancaster Online that authorities found visible dead spots in the felled tree.
“From the outside, the tree looked fine, but once it broke off, you could see dead areas in the center,” Neff said.
Authorities classified the girl’s death as an accident.
