A week after the ex-DD National anchor died after getting crushed under a coconut tree, another tree fell on a class in Joymax Scool in Ghatkopar East. Two KG students are reported to be injured in this incident. Talks are that BMC had recently pruned the same tree.
Last week, a 57 year old yoga teacher died after a tree fell on her injuring her neck at Kurla Road near Swastik Park at Chembur (East). The 57 year old was rushed to the nearest hospital by the locals who witnessed the incident. She was in coma for 2 days before she succumbed to her injuries.
Just similar to these two, one more incident of tree falling happened in Parel, injuring a 75 year old man and a 65 year old woman.
All these incidents have put BMCs tree pruning drive under a strict inspection.
BMC released a report that said that BMC had pruned 60,000 trees beforehand for the monsoons.
