An 11-year-old girl scout has passed away in what authorities are referring to as a “freak accident” after a 45-foot high, 3-foot wide tree fell on her and three others at an Indiana campground called Camp Koch on Monday.

Jasper, Indiana resident Isabelle Meyer died after suffering from both head and torso injuries.

According to People Magazine, Perry County Sheriff Alan Malone confirmed Meyer was the only victim of the incident who suffered fatal injuries.

Malone described the tree falling as a “freak of nature.” While there had been an excessive amount of rain in the area, there wasn’t any high wind, storm warnings, or lightning strikes at the time the tragedy occurred.

Isabelle, along with two middle-aged women and a 10-year-old girl, were walking together down a gravel walkway back toward the mess hall at around 11:30 a.m. after returning from a hike in the woodlands with the rest of the group in front of them.
