Child seriously hurt by falling tree in western Quebec

Paramedics in western Quebec say a 10-year-old child was seriously injured by a falling tree.

They said the incident happened in Farrellton, Que., a town within the municipality of La Pêche.

The child was rushed to Wakefield Hospital because his injuries were severe.

Few other details were immediately available. This comes after two severe thunderstorms tore through eastern Ontario and western Quebec on Friday causing damage.
