Wind Knocks Down Tree on South Campus Apartment

The wind on Sunday was pretty crazy, and evidently it was strong enough to knock down a tree onto a south campus apartment complex, according to The Lantern.

The fall trapped two students and injured another:

Just after noon on Sunday, a tree fell on the apartment complex, trapping two students in the complex and injuring a third. The tree also knocked out several power lines and broke a gas pipe.


The students, two males and one female, did not sustain any major injuries, with Artrip describing them as having only a few scratches. Once the Fire Department was able to get into the building, Artrip said the students were able to walk down the ladder on their own.

I’m sure “stuck under a tree” isn’t anyone’s ideal Sunday, but we are happy to learn the students involved are okay and are being supported by the office of Student Life, Red Cross and Student Advocacy.
