Camp Director Killed While Removing Tree

The Daviess County Sheriff’s Department says the Director of Camp Illiana died Monday morning when a limb fell on him while he was helping cut down a tree at the camp.

60-year-old David Ira-Mitchel Bean was pronounced dead at the scene.

Camp Illiana is a Christian Youth Camp located about four miles south of Washington.

Campers were taking part in classes indoors on the other side of the campground at the time.

No campers or other staff were injured.

The camp has called all of the families of the campers to inform them of the tragic event.

Camp Illiana is giving all family members the opportunity to come to the campsite to check on their camper and take them home if need be.
