Man killed while sleeping in tent during Hurricane Irene

Pennsylvania - A Harrisburg man who was camping out in East Hanover Township with 19 other people was killed when a tree fell on his tent and on top of him, according to Trooper Tom Pinkerton, state police spokesman. Pinkerton said that the 59-year old man, part of a group camping out on McLean Road off of state Route 443, was in his tent with an unidentified female when the tree fell. “This is believed to have been the cause of his death,” Pinkerton said. “The female suffered head injuries and is at Hershey Medical Center.” Pinkerton said that the tree remained on top of the man because the rainy, windy weather and the remote location of the incident makes tree removal difficult. More
