The family of a pregnant Queens woman tragically killed by a falling tree in Flushing is now suing the city.

The 30-year-old was killed when a massive oak toppled on her in Kissena Park.

The family’s suit claims the city failed to properly maintain the tree.

The 70-year-old, 50-foot tree snapped roughly eight feet from the ground before striking the woman in the head.
