September 28, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Five girls received minor injuries when parts of a tree branch fell on them Saturday at the California Museum of Science and Industry, a fire official said.

Firefighters were called to the Exposition Park museum at 39th Street and Menlo Avenue about 9:30 a.m., said Jim Wells of the Los Angeles Fire Department. The branch fell about 25 feet, he said.

Paramedics took the girls -- who are about 8 and 9 years old -- to California Hospital, where they were treated for minor cuts and bruises. Wells said a larger part of the branch missed them.
