“Around 11 am, she was on her way to work at Marathon Tower, accompanied by a friend. While her friend stopped for a snack, she decided to walk ahead. It was raining and suddenly a strong gust of wind blew by and a tree fell on her,” mourned Suresh Satpute, the victim’s father.
Her friend and bystanders rushed her to KEM hospital. “She was brought here in a critical state, and she succumbed to her injuries at 12.45 pm,” said Dr Pravin Bangar.
An accidental death report has been registered at NM Joshi Marg police station. “We are yet to visit the accident spot. Only after our inspection can we comment whether the tree was on BMC or private land,” said PSI Dattatray Sanab.
