HIGH SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - A Gainesville woman is dead after being struck by a falling limb near a north Florida spring.

The Alachua County Sheriff’s Office reports that 26-year-old Briana Giunta was walking on a Poe Springs Park boardwalk Sunday afternoon when rain and wind caused a heavy tree branch to break loose and hit her. She was taken to a Gainesville hospital, where she was declared dead.

The Gainesville Sun (https://goo.gl/iNw4Fg ) reports that two other people were injured, but they declined medical treatment.
