A Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania child is dead in an accident blamed on Hurricane Sandy.

State Police say eight year old Matthew Stahl had gone outside to check on some family cats at his Bronson Hill Road home in Franklin Township near New Milford and Bridgewater Townships.  The boy was outside  shortly before 5:30 p.m. October 29th while his father went to a neighbor’s home to pick up some groceries when a strong gust of wind snapped a tree limb. The limb fell on the boy, killing him.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The family is accepting donations for a memorial fund. Donations can be contributed through the Community Fund of Susquehanna County.

It was not raining at the time.
