Jacques, friend, age 15 - informed mother
I'm not really sure what happened. We were just having some fun racing to the top of the tree. We were laughing and yelling at each other when I heard kinda a loud thud and then it was really quiet. I stopped and peeked down through the tree limbs and that's when I saw Matthieu laying on the ground not moving. I yelled at Philip to climb down and help him. I got down myself and ran up his driveway to tell his mom and get some help. The ambulance came and took Matthieu and his mom to the hospital. You guys came and the hydro guys are here cutting down the tree branches.
