Volume Control’s No Joke: iPod Jogger Killed by Falling Tree

By

Philadelphia police are trying to identify a woman jogger wearing an iPod who was crushed to death Wednesday night by a falling tree.

Chief Inspector Scott Small of Philadelphia Police says a 30-foot-long tree branch fell on the woman from 50 feet above as she ran at 6:35 p.m. on Forbidden Drive, a popular gravel trail through Wissahickon Valley Park in the Northwest part of the city.

Police suspect she didn’t hear it coming because of her iPod, which they could still hear playing when her dead body was found.

The mystery jogger sustained head injuries, what appears to be a broken neck and a compound fracture of her right leg.

The woman  police are looking for help to ID is described as white, in her late 20s or early 30s about 5-feet-5 and weighing 120 pounds.
