The accident is terrible: "It’is a terrible tragedy insofar as it concerns the death of ;rsquo;a two-month-old infant, who was being carried around in a pram by his mother. A branch would have fallen on the pram."

The park was supposed to close from 5 p.m., when the storm was supposed to start according to the weather service. However, due to the unpredictability of the weather, the showers and gusts began at 4 p.m. The mother and her baby were surprised by bad weather.
