10-year-old girl dies in freak accident during camping trip

WISCONSIN (WGN) – A tragedy at a family camp-out in Wisconsin claimed the life of a 10-year-old suburban girl.

“I have that sound of that tree indelibly etched in my mind,” said Kevin Spahr, a grieving father remarkably composed just a day after losing the youngest of his five children.
