    A woman dies after being crushed by a tree in Schoten

    A woman in her fifties has died after being crushed by a tree while she was on her patio in Schoten (Antwerp) on Saturday evening. No-one else was injured.

    “There was no storm in the area at the time”, which would have explained why the tree fell, said the commune’s mayor Maarten De Veuster (New Flemish Alliance). A specialist has to go to the scene to determine the cause of the accident.
