Stirling Times - - Front Page -

THE cou­ple in­volved in Fri­day’s tree fall on their car in Church­lands re­main in Royal Perth Hospi­tal.

The hus­band and wife, both aged 70, were trapped when a big gum tree fell on their ve­hi­cle in Pearson Street be­fore 10am.

A hospi­tal spokes­woman said they were in the hospi­tal’s State Trauma Unit and the man was in a se­ri­ous but sta­ble con­di­tion. His wife was in a sta­ble con­di­tion.

■ Perth’s storms also caused the clo­sure of beach stairs at Met­tams Pool over the week­end and a power out­age at the Scarborough Beach Pool on Fri­day.

City of Stir­ling re­cre­ation and leisure ser­vices man­ager Cheyne Cameron said pa­trons could not use the pool from 5.30am to 7.30am.

“Thanks to our quick-act­ing staff, the is­sue was rec­ti­fied and any dis­rup­tion was min­imised. Scarborough Beach Pool mem­bers were kept in­formed through­out and were very un­der­stand­ing,” he said.
