At least three children were injured, one critically, after a large eucalyptus tree limb crashed onto a daycare facility’s playground in Pasadena. According to a news report in the Los Angeles Times, the incident occurred the afternoon of August 29, 2017. Pasadena fire officials said more than a dozen children were playing outside at Linda Vista Children’s Center when the tree limb fell.
