A Bronx grandmother was rushed to the hospital after several bricks fell on her head, leaving her bloody and dazed.
The bricks apparently fell from a building on Morris Avenue in the Claremont section of the borough around 4:30 p.m. Monday, according to ABC7.
The victim, who is in her mid-60s, was walking near the front door of her apartment building when she was struck in the head with the bricks, NBC4 reported.
"I just ran outside, and she was on the floor, bleeding," the victim’s granddaughter Tayah Johnson told the station.
The building’s superintendent Carlos Cruz said he “thought she was dead.”
Authorities initially thought the bricks may have been thrown. According to ABC7, “the brick facade of the building appeared intact,” and “there were no other bricks along the roofline.” But police have determined they were not tossed.
The victim was taken to Lincoln Hospital, where she was reportedly listed in serious but stable condition.
