STOMPer Yoko says a woman was badly hurt by a falling tree branch outside the Istana grounds. He says he saw her being stretchered off into a waiting ambulance.

This is the latest in a series of incidents involving falling trees and branches in Singapore. Read an earlier story on the subject here.

Yoko describes the scene:

"A woman got hit by a fallen tree branch outside Istana at about 4.15pm this afternoon (June 9).

"I caught sight of her being carried onboard the ambulance. She had a brace around her neck to cushion her injury.

"I hope she is fine."

A spokesperson for SCDF told STOMP that they received the call at 4.08pm. The woman has since been brought to a hospital for urgent medical attention.
