Do you have any type of link to a news story? These topics don't fly around here without proof. I'd expect to see it closed soon unless you can find a link.

"Their conditions were not available, and the seriousness of their injuries was not immediately known."

^Maybe I'm being nitpicky, but I don't see how you can tell the boy died and the mother is in critical condition. This had to have been a decent-sized branch to (supposedly) kill a 5 year old and critically injure an adult woman.

This is very unfortunate. Its just seems like ever since Kennywood bought this park I have been hearing bad things. I cant see how a "branch" could seriously injure someone unless it was really big.

I live 10 mins from the park an its all over the news. It just happened at 7:40pm. The news is not yet posted on any of the networks web sites yet. Here is a couple sites that will have it soon as the story just broke. FOX61.com or WFSB.com. I don't make these stories up. You can read about last nights accident on one of these sites. *** Edited 5/17/2004 2:59:13 AM UTC by Ajrides***

The branch was about 5 inches in diameter and fell about 50 feet. Link same as the one above.
