Two Children Seriously Injured When Tree Falls on Playground [VIDEO]
Two kids were seriously injured when a large tree collapsed on a playground in Chelsea, Mass. on Monday.
According to police:
The injured boys, age 2 and 8 both of Chelsea suffered significant injuries including one being treated for a possible fractured skull. Chelsea officials quickly closed the park as precaution and have ordered the park closed until an inspection of other trees in the park are deemed safe.
One witness described the chaos that ensued. “Everybody was panicking,” Diamond Gonzalez told WHDH. “Everybody called the ambulance, the cops. Nobody knew what to do.”
The injured 2-year-old reportedly has a fractured skull.
The scary scene was caught on video. You can see several children playing right by the tree as it fell. The park has since been closed while officials make sure other trees are safe.
