NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The 2-year-old girl struck by debris that fell from an Upper West Side building is dead, according to police.
Police told CBS2 late Monday that the girl, Greta Greene, was dead late Monday. She was declared brain dead earlier Monday.
Her family told CBS2’s Diane Macedo they are planning on donating her organs.
Greta and her grandmother, Susan Frierson, were struck just after 11 a.m. Sunday at 305 West End Avenue near 74th Street. A large chunk of a window ledge at the Esplanade Senior Residences fell on the two as they sat on a bench outside the nursing home.
Workers have constructed a scaffolding around the Esplanade as the rest of the building gets checked out.Comments
