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.  Mayers, slightly injured, was hospitalized while Edwards and Wood were unharmed.  One of their neighbours, Kimmel Watson, said: “Ingrid and the little baby got out but Tennyson was trapped in the car . . . . The men helped to remove them from the vehicle.” (ML)
