Woman Seriously Injured After Chimney Falls on Her”

An evening relaxing on a North End rooftop almost ended in tragedy late last night after a chimney came clattering down on a woman lounging in a hammock, seriously injuring her.

She was resting in her hammock, which was attached to the chimney, which collapsed on her.

"She was treated by our EMT's and paramedics on the roof", Ed Hassan, of Boston EMS, said.

BFD used a ladder truck to transport the woman from the roof, who was later taken to the hospital for treatment. The Charter Street building was located near the corner of Salem Street.

Information about her injuries have not yet been released.

Last May, a college-aged Amherst man suffered non-life threatening injuries after his roof-top hammock brought down a chimney, that was acting as a support.
