A child was killed early Friday morning by a fallen tree branch after strong winds and heavy rains rolled through a Mankato park.
Mankato Public Safety responded to Land of Memories Park at 2:30 a.m. to a report of a tree branch that had fallen on a tent. Officers arrived on-scene to find a 4-year-old girl with life-threatening injuries. First responders began life-saving measures, and the child was transported to a local hospital, but she was later pronounced dead.
Director of Public Safety Amy Vokal said the 4-year-old’s mother suffered minor injuries. Vokal said second tent was also struck by a falling branch, sending an adult male to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
