Babysitter struck by falling tree limb

A babysitter narrowly escaped death at a North Side park Wednesday.

A large tree limb fell on her while she was watching three children at Touhy Park.

The 24-year-old woman suffered a broken leg, and a number of scrapes, cuts and bruises.

Police officers pulled her out from under the limb.

She was taken to the hospital in serious condition, but her injuries were not life-threatening.

The children were not hurt.
