KAHUKU, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A large tree toppled over onto a rental beach house on Monday, seriously injuring two women, Emergency Medical Services said.

Paramedics treated two patients, ages 56 and 52, who were apparently under a homemade tent-like structure when the tree fell on top of the metal roof, which caused it to crash onto them.

The two patients were both transported to the hospital at approximately 10:15 a.m. in serious condition, and one of the victims suffered head injuries.

Several people were also in the house at the time, but no other injuries were reported.
