The unidentified 48-year-old was rushed to Bellevue Hospital Center in serious but stable condition after the wooden hammock fell from a building on 110 Church St. near Park Place around 4:55 p.m., the police said. The hammock was believed to have fallen five stories to the street below, police said based on a preliminary investigation. The woman, who is visiting the city from Britain and was with her husband during the incident, was conscious, according to a source. There were no other injuries, police said. High winds were likely to have been the cause, according to investigators, but police and the FDNY were still determining what happened.
