SB 10.11.01

sri-suka uvaca
gopa nandadayah srutva
 drumayoh patato ravam
tatrajagmuh kuru-srestha
 nirghata-bhaya-sankitah

Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:

Sukadeva Gosvami continued: O Maharaja Pariksit, when the yamala-arjuna trees fell, all the cowherd men in the neighborhood, hearing the fierce sound and fearing thunderbolts, went to the spot.

SB 10.11.02

bhumyam nipatitau tatra
 dadrsur yamalarjunau
babhramus tad avijñaya
 laksyam patana-karanam

Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:

There they saw the fallen yamala-arjuna trees on the ground, but they were bewildered because even though they could directly perceive that the trees had fallen, they could not trace out the cause for their having done so.

Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:

Considering all the circumstances, had this been done by Kṛṣṇa? He was standing on the spot, and His playmates described that this had been done by Him. Had Kṛṣṇa actually done this, or were these merely stories? This was a cause of bewilderment.

SB 10.11.03

ulukhalam vikarsantam
 damna baddham ca balakam
kasyedam kuta ascaryam
 utpata iti katarah

Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:

Krsna was bound by the rope to the ulukhala, the mortar, which He was dragging. But how could He have pulled down the trees? Who had actually done it? Where was the source for this incident? Considering all these astounding things, the cowherd men were doubtful and bewildered.

Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:

The cowherd men were very much agitated because the child Krsna, after all, had been standing between the two trees, and if by chance the trees had fallen upon Him, He would have been smashed. But He was standing as He was, and still the things had happened, so who had done all this? How could these events have happened in such a wonderful way? These considerations were some of the reasons they were agitated and bewildered. They thought, however, that by chance Krsna had been saved by God so that nothing had happened to Him.
