NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- A child was recovering Friday, after being struck with a flying piece of wood.

It happened around 9:30 a.m. The 8-year-old girl was struck in the head by a piece of debris that fell from her building. Some eye witnesses said it was a piece of plywood, others said it was a door.

Whatever it was sent the girl to a local hospital to have a head laceration checked out.

"And then it's terrible, the girl is coming a lot of blood, and then crying to the boy," next door neighbor Blanca said.

Blanca said the girl was with her parents and 2-year-old brother when it happened.
