A San Francisco woman who was out jogging in Golden Gate Park on Saturday evening was reportedly struck by a falling tree branch and died, KRON4 reported.
San Francisco police reportedly responded to a 911 call at 5:15 p.m. Saturday and found the unresponsive jogger, according to KTVU. The 70-year-old woman was near John F. Kennedy Drive and 30th Avenue, near Lindley Meadow in Golden Gate Park, and she was found on the ground next to a large branch.
Emergency services attempted to render life-saving medical treatment, but the victim reportedly could not be resuscitated.
“Unfortunately this valued community member did not survive,” San Francisco Fire Lt. Jonathan Baxter told the Chronicle
She was declared dead at the scene, authorities said.
Her identity has not been publicly released, but officials said she was a San Francisco resident. More details about the death have not been provided, and it’s unclear if the tree branch fell due to the inclement weather this weekend.
