VIDEO: Tree crashes on top of children playing in park

Two children are recovering after a tree came crashing down on top of them while they were playing in a park on Monday.

The terrifying incident was captured on city cameras. The large tree fell in the children's play area.

"It was scary," said 8-year-old Diego Ruiz, who has staples in his head and bruises on his shoulder. "The tree fell on my head and then I can't escape."

A 2-year-old was also hurt. He is being treated for a possible fractured skull, but a family member said she is optimistic about the boy's condition. 

Officials do not yet know what caused the tree to crash down without warning.
