Baby's parents to sue after Central Park death

A report this morning says the parents of a New Jersey infant killed in Central Park by fallen tree limb are putting the city on notice that they're planning to sue for $50 million.

Back in June, Karla Del Gayo was holding her six-month old daughter, Gianna, and posing for a picture beneath a tree near the Central Park Zoo, when the branch snapped.

The tree came crashing down, killing the child and putting the mother in a coma for weeks.

According to Sunday morning's New York Post, the suit will name the city, the Central Park Conservancy, which oversees the park, and the Wildlife Conservation Society.
