A woman has been taken to hospital after she was struck by a falling tree branch at a Burlington park.

According to reports, the woman was walking through LaSalle Park around 1 p.m. today when she was struck by the branch.

The extent of her injuries are not known but she was taken to the hospital.

Reports say the Burlington Firefighter crews who arrived at the scene found the woman under the large branch and had to lift it off her.

Those who were in the park area at the time said via social media that strong winds that whipped up quickly during a brief rainfall were violently shaking tree branches at the park.
