Several people were injured when a tree fell on a group of people having a picnic in West Fairmount Park on Sunday afternoon, 8/7. It happened around 12:20 p.m. on the 5300 block of N. Georges Hill Drive near the Mann Center. The 90-year-old white oak fell on members of the West Philadelphia High School class of 1972 who were having a class reunion. Eight people were injured. Philadelphia Department of Parks and Recreation said, "We prepare picnic sites seasonally, and inspect them weekly. Park supervisors inspect picnic areas for hazards, items in need of repair, and fallen or hanging tree branches. This picnic site was inspected within the last week." A few hours later, another tree fell down about a 100 feet away. No one was injured.

Two men were shot and injured in an apparent drive-by shooting early Friday morning, 8/5, in East Oak Lane. It happened around 1:30 a.m. on the 400 block of West Cheltenham Avenue at Oak Lane Road on the border of Philadelphia and Cheltenham. The men were pumping air into their tires at the Sunoco gas station when a white SUV drove up. Someone opened fired from the rear passenger window. One man was struck in the hand while the other was hit in the foot. They were taken to Einstein Medical Center in stable condition.

The body of a man was found in the Schuylkill River last week in Gray's Ferry. It happened before 8 a.m. on Friday, August 5, on the 1600 block of Schuylkill Ave. The man in his 40s was pulled from the river. There were no visible signs of trauma. Authorities are investigating the man's identity and how he died.
