Shipe Park Tree Drops Limb 2011-09-28

[Click on the images for a 640x480.]

Wednesday, just about 7pm, the huge live oak between the playscape and the activity building yielded a loud CRACK! The Habraken family had just snapped a picture of their children in that tree and managed to escape. See their pictures at In particular this one.

Panic ensued as the massive limb broke off and fell.

There was a young mother and her very young child sitting at the picnic table about 10 feet from the unfortunate bench you see. You can just make out her and the blue table in the very center of the 2nd image.
