Flowers and mementos are left at the site where 16-year-old Lauren Metz was struck by a falling tree branch in Derry Township Community Park during a severe thunderstorm, which swept through the area Thursday evening. The area was experiencing high winds and heavy rains at the time of the accident, according to Mifflin County Regional Police. Metz died Friday at Geisinger Medical Center as a result of the head injuries she sustained.
The tree has since been cut down and Metz’s family and friends have created a memorial to her around the remaining stump. Photos and letters are scattered around as a tribute.
The death was confirmed Monday by an area funeral home handling the teen’s arrangements.
