A woman was killed and 5 others were injured when a large eucalyptus tree fell on a wedding party taking photographs at a Southern California park.

Several people were trapped under the tree at Whittier's Penn Park, the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.

Four of the injured suffered scrapes and bruises, officials said. A 4-year-old girl was listed in critical condition due to head trauma, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The tree could have been weakened by California's ongoing drought and recent heavy rain could have contributed to its fall, officials said.
