At least one person injured after large tree limb falls at SF's Washington Square Park

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- At least one person was injured after a large tree limb fell at San Francisco's Washington Square Park on Tuesday.

According to witnesses, around 5:45 p.m. they started to hear the tree crackling and that's when the branch came down. They say it fell on a woman who said she was "ok" and walked away from the scene.

ABC7 News reporter Amanda del Castillo spoke to another woman who says she and her friends were celebrating a birthday just feet away from where the branch crashed down. She says she is a little shaken up but thankfully no one in her group was injured.

In August 2016, a tree limb fell on a woman at Washington Square Park that left her paralyzed. The city responded to this incident by going tree to tree inspecting conditions to prevent another accident like this from happening.
