A mother and child are in hospital with minor injuries after a tree fell on their car in Surrey during a day of weather chaos on the Lower Mainland, the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island.
The woman was in the car with her youngest child when the tree fell, according to her niece, Nicole Tran.
Tran said the woman's eldest child, nine years old, escaped from the car, but the woman and her youngest, who is of preschool age, were trapped in the car between 10 and 20 minutes until fire crews arrived.
Environment Canada had earlier forecast winds gusting up to 70 km/h over Greater Victoria, the Southern Gulf Islands, East Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast.
