This is extremely sad:
A 6-month-old New Jersey girl was killed and her mom badly injured yesterday when a tree branch fell on them as they posed for a photo at the Central Park Zoo.
Gianna Ricciutti died in the horrifying accident that played out before helpless relatives and dozens of zoo-goers at around 1:40 p.m. by the Delacorte Clock near East 63rd Street.
The tragedy occurred as dad Mike Ricciutti, 41, of Union City, was taking a picture of his wife, Karla, and daughter. “The entire family is in a state of shock and they can’t stop crying,” heartbroken relative Suzanne Fastow told The Post. She said that Karla “is a very loving mother and she idolizes that child. She would never put her in harm’s way. They are a very close-knit family.”
Witnesses heard a creaking sound, “and then somebody screams and the tree branch falls,” a police source said.
“The mom was holding the baby,” the source said. “The dad was taking a picture when the branch fell and hit them.”
