#Disaster : Falling tree kills 13 at Catholic festival in Portugal

The tree came down during an important Catholic celebration on the island, regional Health Secretary Pedro Ramos said in a televised news conference.



The dead and injured had gathered to honor Our Lady of the Mountain at a church in a village near the island's main city of Funchal, Ramos said. Tuesday marked the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, when Catholics celebrate the assumption of the body of Jesus Christ's mother into heaven. It is one of six Catholic holy days of obligation.

A spokesman for the Funchal Hospital announced the 13th death on Tuesday. Sixteen of the injured people remain in the hospital, he said.
