Falling tree branch kills baby

NEW YORK (AP) - A baby is dead and her mother is hospitalized in stable condition after a tree branch fell on them at New York's Central Park Zoo.

Police say the 33-year-old New Jersey woman was posing for a photo with her 6-month-old daughter in front of the sea lion exhibit Saturday when the branch fell.

Her husband was taking their picture.

It's the second fatality caused by a falling tree branch this year at Central Park.

A man died in February when a branch heavy from snow fell and hit him.

In July 2009, a Google engineer was knocked unconscious after being hit on the head by a rotted tree branch at the park.
