Fallen Tree Limb Causes Injuries

A 69-year old Lincoln woman suffered life threatening injuries from a fallen tree limb.

Officer Angela Sands says that the woman and her 63-year old neighbor were removing a fallen tree limb from her car Sunday when another limb fell from the tree sending both to the hospital. His injuries were not life threatening.

Officer Sands recommends caution after one limb has fallen from a compromised tree..because others might fall as well. Sands says the limbs covered with snow and ice can be incredibly heavy and dangerous.
