Some people call strange happenings in nature an act of God, but this would not be one of them.
Yingyi Li-Dikov, 30, of Queens, was probably taking a jog or walk in Flushing’s Kissena Park on Sunday evening when she sat down to rest on a bench. But, as she sat on the bench, an oak tree came down on her and killed her. But not only did she lose her life, she was six months pregnant and her child did not survive the freak accident, according to the New York Daily News.
Dikov had only been married for a year and was expecting her first child with her husband.
“She was a very great and loving person,” Li-Dikov’s heartbroken husband, Aleksandar Dikov, 20, said. “I was so happy to be with her. She was the one for me. She was the best thing. I don’t think I’ll find another girl like her. I know I won’t.”
What can one do with this, but shake their head…and call their attorney because surely the New York Parks and Recreation department should have some accountability in this tragedy. According to the report, this is not the first incident in the park. NYC Parks Advocates president, Geoffrey Croft, said this was “at least the 12th injury from a falling tree limb in the past eight weeks.”
