May 23, 2011

LINCOLN — A Manville woman died tragically Friday evening when a tree limb being cut by her husband struck her in the head, apparently killing her instantly.
Police responded to a home on Elm Street at 8:06 p.m. after receiving a report of a domestic accident. Lt. Joseph Conti and Patrolman Walter Ptaszek stated the man had asked his wife to hold a rope attached to a limb so that, once it was cut, she could lower it to the ground gently.

Their daughter, Madylin, is the one in 16,000 newborns diagnosed with the birth defect, a complex syndrome resulting from a chromosomal abnormality.
