Four people - including three children - were hurt when a tree toppled onto a Central Park roadway Tuesday morning, officials said.
Antonio Russo of Williamsburg was riding his bike and was about 100 yards away when the tree fell near West 62nd Street. The critical patient is an adult, according to an FDNY spokesperson on the scene.
"She came to, and started crying and going insane, and was yelling for the baby", Mr. Russo said. The FDNY says some of the injured were children, but it's not clear how many. The unidentified 29-year-old woman was hit in the head and trapped under the thick branches of the tree in the popular New York City park. All four have been taken to the hospital after the woman was freed around 10:10, the FDNY said. After she was released from underneath, "she was hysterical", he said.
The mother, her two little boys and her baby were transported to New York-Presbyterian Weill Cornell Medical Center. "He handed the baby to my wife and she held the baby by the police".

Civilians and the NYPD worked together to clear debris and smaller branches from the mother, Officer Joseph Tomeo of the Mounted Unit said, before the FDNY arrived with chainsaws. Winds blew between 0 and 3 miles per hour from 9:51 a.m.to 10:51 a.m., according to the National Weather Service.
One eyewitness who saw the Central Park tree fall on the mother said she lost consciousness for several moments.
"It just snapped, and it was so loud, and when it came down, it was just a huge noise", Brown said.
All trees in the park are maintained by the Central Park Conservancy, the Parks Department said, adding that "crews are immediately inspecting trees in the vicinity for safety".
