Mothers would do absolutely anything to protect their children from danger, so when one New York mom realized a massive 75-foot tall tree was about to crush her young children, she was ready to sacrifice herself to save them.
Earlier this week, 39-year-old Anne Monoky Goldman was out for a morning walk with her three young sons and her 41-day-old baby in New York’s Central Park. “All of a sudden we heard a branch cracking and it turned out to be this giant tree falling on her and her kids,” a bystander said.
“It’s a little more emotional when children are involved, especially since a lot of us have children of our own. I have a son the same age as the 2-year-old, so it was definitely heartbreaking to see this,” mounted police officer Megan O’Leary said. Despite the upsetting scene, police and good Samaritans acted quickly to lift the tree off Monoky Goldman and comfort her kids.
