A wedding in California turned into mayhem as a guest died after being crushed by a tree that fell on a group of people clicking photos. The incident happened at the Penn Park in Whittier when a large eucalyptus tree fell on the woman who was taking part in the photo session.

It was reported that five other people, including a four-year-girl, got injured in the accident. The child was rushed to the hospital after she received severe head injuries.

Following the incident, Los Angeles County Fire Department people were quickly rushed to the spot and they used chainsaws to cut through branches to rescue other people who got trapped under the tree.

Sky News reported witnesses saying that they heard a loud crack and saw people frantically running away from the southern California park.
