Woman Hit By Tree Branch While Jogging Around Chestnut Hill Reservoir

BOSTON (CBS) – A woman was hit by a tree branch while jogging around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir near Boston College Wednesday afternoon.

Boston Police say she may have been the victim of Mother Nature, rather than two men who were standing nearby.

The woman, who has no connection to BC, told investigators she was hit in the head with a large tree branch just after 5 p.m.

When she looked up, two young men in their 20’s were laughing nearby.  She shouted at them and called police, but the men ran away.

Now, police are trying to determine whether the branch fell on it’s own or whether the men hit her with it, which is what the woman initially reported.

Anyone with information is asked to called Boston Police at 617-343-4250 or BC Police at 617-552-4440.
