Danbury Mayor: 1 dead following storm; another man seriously injured

DANBURY --  According to Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton, one person died following Tuesday's storm on Candlewood Lake.

According to Boughton, the male was sitting in his truck as the storm approached, when a tree fell on his truck. Boughton said the family called 911 to report the incident.

Boughton said rescuers had to take a boat to get him because the house was inaccessible from downed trees due to the storm.

In another incident, Boughton said a young man was seriously injured after a dugout from a baseball field collapsed at Henry Abbott Technical High School.

At this time, no names or ages have been released for both incidents.
