Police: Man hit by falling tree limb in critical condition
CANTON, Mass. (AP) — A 48-year-old man has been hospitalized after being struck by a falling tree limb following a winter snowstorm.
Police said Saturday the man was in critical condition at Boston Medical Center.
Police say the man was in his yard around 11:15 p.m. Friday tending to an outdoor hockey rink when the tree limb fell on him.
Police haven’t released the man’s identity.
A 6-year-old girl died Friday evening after she was hit by a falling tree limb at her home in a nearby neighborhood.
Kaleigh Kenyon was pinned under the large limb during the snowstorm. She was taken to a hospital where she later died.
Police urged residents, and especially children, to stay indoors because of the danger from falling trees and limbs.
