An old woman died after a coconut tree collapsed and fell on her in Purok 4, Labuan last Monday morning.

The fatality was identified as Alicia Ramos Francisco.

She was rushed to the hospital but expired while undergoing treatment.

The freak accident took place around 7:20 a.m. while Francisco and her grand children were having a conversation outside their house.

Police said that Francisco and her grand children initially heard crumbling noises that prompted the old woman to tell the children to vacate the area.

The grandmother however was left behind and was hit by the tree.

Police said that another tree collapsed on the coconut tree and caused the latter to fall on the woman.  (Dan Toribio)
