Annais Rittenberg was excited to be coming home this weekend for a two-day break.

There were a few days left in the first session at Camp Tawonga, a summer camp near Yosemite National Park where Rittenberg worked. But Rittenberg, 21, was tragically killed Wednesday after a tree "spontaneously fell" outside the camp's dining hall about 8:30 a.m., according to police and camp officials. Four staff members were also injured, but no campers were harmed. Read more here.
