The Daily News has the complete story on the tree branch that fell on a man in Carroll Park yesterday. Justin Calicchio, 23, was playing dodgeball with his friends when he was knocked out by a falling broken branch.
Calicchio had a neck brace on and was awaiting X-rays last night, he said. He is believed to have suffered back injuries, paramedics said.
A “traumatized” Calicchio said he was happy to be alive and thanked his rescuers, who told him he was inches away from more serious injuries.
