March 29, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

A 16-year-old Santa Rosa boy was killed in Oregon when a tree limb fell on his tent during a wilderness expedition near Waldo Lake.

The boy, whose name was not released, was one of seven teens on a 21-day trip with Albany, Ore.-based Catherine Freer Wilderness Therapy Expeditions.

The group was accompanied by four adult counselors, authorities said. Counselors awoke Wednesday and found the boy dead inside his tent.
