A two-month-old baby died tragically when a tree branch fell on his stroller due to the strong winds and the storm that hit Belgium on Tuesday (9/7).

As reported by the mayor of the Brussels district of Ucl on the rtl television network, "the mother was walking with her child in the park around 4 p.m. when the storm broke and a branch fell on the cart. The baby was taken to hospital but succumbed to his injuries."

Many more minor injuries were recorded.

Brussels firefighters had already carried out 86 operations by Wednesday morning, according to their spokesman, of which “46 involved various objects blown by the wind, 22 uprooted trees and 18 operations for cellars or flooded streets. About 200 calls are still pending."
