A tree has fallen onto a young family’s tent on Sunday morning. 

About 3:30am, it’s understood a mother, father, child, and dog were asleep in their tent at Lane Pool Reserve’s Nanga Mill camping grounds when a pine tree uplifted and fell onto their campsite.

It’s believed the three sustained broken bones and the dog tragically passed away.

The child is currently in a serious but stable condition at Perth Children’s Hospital.
