The man, who was not seriously injured, was taken to the Accident and Emergency Department of Paphos hospital. There were around 300 people at the campsite, at the time, CNA reported.Senior official of the forestry department, Andreas Christou, said that there had been similar incidents in the past also in parks in Nicosia. Usually eucalyptus branches fall between June and July, sometimes August, he said, even in days when there is no wind.The forestry department, he said, prunes eucalyptus trees especially in areas where there are many visitors, such as campsites and parks.Christou called on the public to keep in mind that trees are not static and that they have dynamics.Mayor of Polis Chrysochous, Yiotis Papachristofi, said that after the incident at Kato Pyrgos, the forestry department had pruned eucalyptus trees at the Polis campsite.  You May LikeAmiraspantry.comA No Wine Shrimp Scampi recipe that you can safely give to your kids or eat if you follow a no alcohol dietAmiraspantry.comUndoCar List10 Smart Reasons for Buying a Used CarCar ListUndoMattress ReviewsTop Mattresses of 2019Mattress ReviewsUndo Companies must use buying power to root out slavery, says UK officialUndoProtest outside the House over foreclosures lawUndoRouhani hopes British PM Johnson’s “familiarity” with Iran will help improve relationsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
