Fallen tree pins Michigan summer camp counselor inside cabin

A fallen tree trapped a counselor at a summer camp near Lake Michigan in their bed early Thursday.

Michigan State Police said around 12 campers, who are girls in third to fifth grade, were in a cabin with two adult counselors at Camp Ao Wa Kiya in west Michigan's Benona Township when a tree crashed onto the cabin just before 1:55 a.m.


Thunderstorms cause widespread damage across Metro Detroit

Thunderstorms on Wednesday night caused widespread damage in Metro Detroit, especially in lower Oakland County, where trees and power lines were brought down.

The tree destroyed the cabin and pinned one of the counselors to her bed. When troopers arrived, they removed broken glass and debris as they worked to free the trapped victim.

After about 1 ½ hours, the woman was freed from the cabin. She was not hurt.

No campers were hurt, either. A trooper did suffer a minor hand injury.
