Falling Tree in New York Injures Multiple Park Visitors

Bryant Park was packed on the Labor Day holiday weekend with New Yorkers looking to escape the sun . However, what should have been a carefree day in the shade turned tragic when a large tree snapped in half, crashing down on several people below. Falling tree limb accidents in New York City parks are not a common occurrence but roughly once a year someone is seriously injured-sometimes even killed-by branches or portions of trunks that come toppling out of the sky.

Falling Tree Branch Kills Pregnant Woman; Injures Another

A tragic accident in Flushing's Kissena Park took the life of a 30-year old woman and her unborn child early on the evening of August 4, 2013. Yingyi Li-Dikov, an Ithaca College graduate, had stopped to rest on a park bench with another woman when a massive limb from the oak tree above came crashing down on them both. Yingyi was pronounced dead at a local hospital after being struck in the head and body by the limb. The other woman was treated for injuries caused by falling tree branches and released.
