At the height of Sandy last Monday night, two Bucks County brothers were hurt when a massive tree came crashing down.
According to Matt Dietrich, a tree in the front yard of their Levittown home fell on his sons Kyle and Ryan. Kyle was able to escape and sustained only minor injuries, but 19-year-old Ryan was pinned under the tree and suffered severe head injury. While they were trying to save the victim, more trees came down right next to them. It was the SUV parked in front of the house that took the brunt of the impact.
The victims were transported to a local hospital. Kyle was released from the hospital Wednesday while Ryan should be released Monday. Their father was thankful that both his son are well.
