Woman killed after tree branch falls on her with her son present

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) - Police say a boy witnessed as his 52-year-old mother was struck by a fallen tree branch that killed her following severe weather that impacted much of southeast Texas.

The 7-year-old boy was walking with his mother outside their home on Pandora Drive near Oates Road in northeast Houston on Tuesday morning when the large branch fell onto her in the driveway, relatives told FOX 26 News.

When the branch snapped from the tree, it caused a powerline to fall with it, which prevented paramedics from assisting her immediately. The boy ran to his bus stop and alerted the school bus driver who contacted 911 from the campus.

Family members confirmed that the boy was recovering from his injuries at Texas Children's Hospital.
