WEATHER | Man Crushed In Bed By Tree He Asked To Get Cut Down Before, Man Found Dead in Manhattan Garage

NY Post reports:

Tony Laino, 29, of Flushing, was sleeping at about 7 p.m. Monday when the tree crashed through his home and crushed him in his bed.

Neighbors and relatives said that his family had pleaded with the city to remove the tree that wound up killing him — but that officials told them it was healthy enough to stay.

“The Parks Department was here last month cutting trees, but they let this one stay,” said neighbor Joanne Evangelista, 66.

Laino’s heartbroken fiancée, Danielle Valente, couldn’t hold back her tears as she stared at the home where her would-be husband died.

“This is awful,” Valente said, sobbing. “I don’t want to go back. I don’t want to be by myself.”

Two people were found dead in downtown Manhattan: A 55-year-old man pushed by water into a commercial building on 90 Broad St., and a parking attendant in his 40s found dead on the first floor of the garage where he worked.
