Woman Blames City for Loss of Her Leg
By IULIA FILIP
SAVANNAH, Ga. (CN) - Savannah, so proud of its giant live oaks it's called the Forest City, faces a lawsuit from a woman who says she lost a leg when a giant oak branch fell on her.
Shanta Green claims in Chatham County Court that she lost her leg because Savannah failed to maintain its trees.
Her attorney, Howard Spiva, told the Savannah Morning News that reductions in the city's park and tree staff have been so severe that the city is not able to monitor and maintain its trees.
