Tree Falls On 79-Year-Old Woman Using Axe In Holliston
HOLLISTON (CBS) – A 79-year-old Holliston woman was rushed to the hospital after a tree fell on her in her backyard. Beatrice Wardford was actually cutting down the tree herself, using an axe, when the accident happened.
Her sixteen-year-old neighbor, Katelyn Springsteen, was walking home from the school bus when she heard the cries. “It sounded like a cat meowing. As I got closer I heard the cries for help,” she tells WBZ-TV.Folks, I gotta say. If I'm 79 years old and still in good enough shape to be cutting down trees with an axe I will consider myself pretty darn lucky. I certainly hope that I'd have the good sense not to be on the wrong side of the tree while I was cutting it, mind you, but being of a sufficiently sprite body that I could still swing an axe at 79 would be something to look forward to. The woman initially refused medical care, but was transported to a local hospital and treated for her injuries.
The tree did not make any statement to authorities.
That is all.
