A tourist was clobbered by a wooden hammock in Manhattan Tuesday when a strong wind sent the piece of outdoor furniture sailing off a five story rooftop.
The freak accident happened shortly before 5 p.m. as the 48-year-old British tourist was walking on a Tribeca street with her husband, according to police sources.
It fell! It hit her! cried a man who was walking with the victim, witnesses recounted.
I heard a loud boom, and when I ran out, I saw a hammock on the sidewalk and the woman lying down right next to the hammock, said Baby Rashad, a manager at nearby store De Janeiro. She couldnt move. Shes in bad shape. Her left leg was twisted up.
