THREE RESIDENTS of Rosemont, Deacons, St Michael, escaped major injury around 1 p.m. yesterday when a tamarind tree fell on their car, parked near their home.

Tennyson Mayers, 66, his girlfriend Ingrid Edwards, 59, and Edwards’ 18-month-old granddaughter Shania Wood were sitting in the back of the vehicle when the incident occurred.
