ELKHART, Ind. (AP) — Police say five people were taken to the hospital after a part of a tree landed on several people watching a soccer game in northern Indiana.

Elkhart police say a strong gust of wind caused part of the tree to fall on people in the bleachers Sunday afternoon at Studebaker Park. Five people were taken to Elkhart General Hospital, and one was later taken to Riley Hospital for Children.

According to police, city officials have contacted family members of those who were hurt.
