11-year-old boy hospitalised after tree falls on him

An 11-year-old boy was injured today after a section of a tree fell on him in a tenement yard on John’s Lane in Kingston.

The boy is now admitted at the Bustamante Hospital for Children in stable condition.

The incident occurred about 3:00 pm, and rendered impassable, a section of the lane, which runs parallel to East Street.

Residents said the child was playing on a scooter when a rotten branch broke free and fell, hitting him.

Other residents recounted how the boy was hoisted into a car, as he drifted out of consciousness, and that it’s driver, Omarro Tate, made a dash against one-way traffic on North Street to KPH.
