LOUDON COUNTY, Tenn. (WATE) – A 3-year-old girl died Monday after a tree fell on a mobile home in Loudon County during straight line winds and rain.
Sheriff Tim Guider said the tree fell on Stockton Valley Road near Philadelphia, Tennessee, pinning the girl, who was sleeping in her bedroom, underneath.
The girl, whose identity wasn’t immediately known, was taken to Sweetwater Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.
The girl’s parents and two older brothers were not injured. A neighbor brought over a tractor to help the family get out of the home.
Sheriff Guider said the tree demolished most of the home.
