Two Australian tourists got very up-close-and-personal with Central Park nature yesterday when a tree fell and its branches knocked them down. WCBS 880 reports that Melanie Ciancio and Brooke Spagnolo, who were getting their portraits drawn, "weren't seriously hurt"; one told NY1, "Suddenly we hear this crackling noise and then we were just on the floor and hit to the ground and the branches were on top of us and we crawled out and it was really surreal and weird, just really shook us up." They were in town for Ciancio's 30th birthday and "were impressed at how quickly passers by and EMS officials arrived to help." The park's department thinks wet soil contributed to the tree's fall.
