A 20-year-old Great Neck woman was seriously injured early Monday when a tree fell on her second-story bedroom, entrapping her as she slept, Nassau County police said.

The woman was taken to an area hospital "for treatment of multiple trauma injuries and is listed in serious but stable condition," police said in a news release.

A large tree on Wooleys Lane East in Great Neck collapsed and police and rescue personnel responded at about 12:04 a.m.

The fallen tree struck the roof of a second-story bedroom, and the woman was pinned by debris and the tree as she slept, police said.

Several fire departments along with Nassau County police's Emergency Services Unit were able to free her, police said.
