SOUTH HAMPTON, N.H. (CBS) – Two workers were injured when two pine trees fell on them at a campground in South Hampton, New Hampshire on Thursday.

Police said the men were driving slowly along the Tuxbury Pond Campground when a gust of wind knocked the trees over before 1 p.m.

The trees, which were about 25 feet long and 1 foot around, trapped the men in a gator, a work vehicle made by John Deere.

One of the men was transported to Exeter Hospital in New Hampshire, while the other was sent to Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport. Both men suffered serious injuries to their legs.
