PHILADELPHIA, TN (WATE) – A three-year-old girl has died after a tree fell on a mobile home in Loudon County Monday night during straight line winds and rain.
Sheriff Tim Guider says the tree fell on Stockton Valley Road near Philadelphia, pinning the girl, who was sleeping in her bedroom, underneath. The girl was taken to Sweetwater Medical Center where she was pronounced dead.
Guider says the tree demolished most of the home. 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.
