An 11-year-old boy was killed when a tree crashed onto his Putnam Valley home during Friday's nor'easter.
The incident happened on Dunderberg Road, says the Putnam County sheriff.
The large tree came crashing down on the home, trapping the young boy underneath.
A sheriff's deputy tried to rescue the boy, but the boy was pronounced dead at the scene.
The boy's mother was taken to a nearby hospital to be evaluated.
