Photos and video sent in by a FOX 13 viewer showed the branch having fallen on the ground while still connected to the tree. In another video, a group of people, possibly park employees, could be seen removing the branch after it had been cut down.

A few children reportedly suffered scrapes and bruises, but no serious injuries.

The viewer said no one was climbing on the tree when the branch broke off.
