Attorneys, Jordan Merson and Tom Kline appeared on Good Morning America on the morning of February 26, 2018 along with Anne Monoky, a mother and a victim of the incident, who heroically placed herself between her children and the falling tree and her husband, Curt Goldman. This incident happened in Central Park on August 15, 2017.
Anne Monoky was finally able to express the extent of her suffering and the impact of such a traumatic experience with her attorneys by her side. Anne was also able to respond to a few questions and clarified some information to the press in construe of what happened.
In her brief message she said, “This is very hard for me but I want to share some thoughts, as I’ve had a lot of time to think about what happened, the meaning of family and friends, as well as total strangers..
That moment of sheer terror–when our walk in the park turned into a nightmare.”
She is sincerely grateful to those who have been of assistance to her and her kids throughout the whole process of recovery.
Monoky, Merson and Kline want to shed light on these kinds of incidents to avoid re-occurrence of possible negligence by the City of New York.
“Please understand that I will never forget what it was like to fear our three boys’ safety and well-being. I am so lucky to be alive…we are so fortunate that no decayed tree, no injury–even ones that may never heal–can ever break our bond as a family.
We worry about our boys and are closely watching them. I am so grateful they did not suffer worse injury.”, she added.
