8 Year Old Haley Verzani Perished In Sunday's Early Morning Tree Accident ~By John Hamilton

Arnold, CA...Now that her friends are at Hazel Fisher where grief counselors are on hand today the Calaveras County Coroner has released that it was 8 year old Haley Verzani that tragically perished when a 36" diameter tree fell into her bedroom early yesterday morning...


We would like to thank Tim Sullivan for sending in the photo above. We know that many of you are curious about the size of the tree. Needless to say from the shot above it was a large heavy tree. We try to balance what we publish with how it well affect all involved. We hope that by posting this we can slow some of the drive by traffic..


The basics for those of you who may not have read the earlier stories. Between 6:30 and 7:00am Sunday morning a large tree fell in the 2700 Block of Moran Drive. The tree fell into the home and into Haley's bedroom. Inspite of the valiant efforts by the Ebbetts Pass Fire District, Law Enforcement and other agencies in the area Haley succumbed to her injuries.

A Chaplin from the Murphys Fire District was called to the scene to help the family as well. Our hearts go out to the family and her friends. Parents can only imagine their grief in losing a child in such an unexpected and sudden manner.

Now that her name has been released we will be opportunities for the community to start helping the family through this tragic event.

Calaveras County is a wonderful place that rally's around it's neighbors when events like this happen. This time I am sure will be no exception.

From all of us at ThePineTree.net and I am sure most of us in the area we would like to stress that the Verzani Family will be in our thoughts and prayers and anything you would like for us to publicize that may help just let us know.

So sad to hear about Haley, does anyone know if she had any siblings that may also go to local schools?

God Bless Haley and may she be safe and happy in Heaven.

The Death of a Child
Posted on: 2012-03-19 14:41:50   By: Anonymous
 
Although this information was posted on Facebook, and not in your paper, I do feel this observation needs to be addressed. My children live in Arnold, so I often follow the news in the mountains. On Sunday, not long after an 8 year old child was killed by a falling tree, an announcement was posted on Facebook. It was composed by a nurse, relating several activities this child would not enjoy, due to her untimely death. It also admonished parents to cherish all of the moments spent with their children. This nurse then gave the name of the little girl. I was absolutely horrified! This woman presented this statement, while all other sources i.e. the school, your paper, and the coroner, held this information in temporary confidence. Which, out of respect for the family, is how it should have been. Not only do I question the ethics of this "professional", but the so-called empathy she says she feels for the family. To me, and many others I have heard from, it appears her primary motive was to be the "Town Crier". I seriously doubt that there is one single family that is not holding their child or children a little closer following this tragedy. Were I that nurse, who shall remain nameless "out of respect" for HER privacy, I would feel very ashamed of myself for needing to be the first to report the name of this little girl.

    I said this in the the other article and I'll say it here. If a nurse released confidential patient information that is a HIPPA violation and she could and should lose her RN license. Posting patient information of Facebook is beyond poor taste. . .

      did she post it as a human being who happens to be a nurse or did she post it as a nurse, at the scene? one way, not punishable, the other way, big time punishment from the BRN. either way, reprehensible

        I honestly don't know if she was at the scene or not. But as you said, reprehensible either way.

          A nurse wouldn't be on scene as an EMS responder. . . either way she should know better. HIPPA is Chapter 1 in virtually all medical worker educational programs. Not to mention yearly mandatory continuing education. Really NO excuse for it .

    that is why facebook is so worthless...it is a giant gossip machine with no regards to the feelings of the familiy or those who may not have known yet. Blessings little ones.

    Sorry, have to say something here, why don't YOU cry about this on Facebook. You are doing just the same thing here about crying to the town. Leave your Facebook drama on face book. This is not a social networking site, this is a news site. People are mourning about the death of a child here, not about the he said she said.

    If the person you say left name on face book is a so called nurse does not matter she was not on duty at the time and she was on her personal life out of work .... You want to pick on someone because we all are concerned in our community !!! Everyone new up here when it happened we have scanners and new of the address !!! It was not out of respect !!! Or privacy she was not on duty on her work site !! And did not find out thru her work !!! Come on once again petty remarks.... And you need to respect the family and their loss instead of petty remarks on this site !!!! And I am very sorry for the Family and there loss and the community is also feeling your loss... RIP HALEY

    For starters...THIS is NOT the place for you to cry about what took place on fb that you are NOT happy about. Go call a friend , if you have any and cry to them! I am appalled that you think this is the place to do so. Post on her should be about what matters.....a beautiful girl lost her life , a family has to mourn as well as a community. I apologize to everyone that reads further but i feel i do need to address this rude and disrespectful woman! Your ranting about a nurse (fyi, get your information straight! she is NOT a nurse!) 2nd- her page is private so you heard from a 3rd party!) 3rd-she is a wonderful person that has compassion for a little girl and her family so she posted that. It was on her page, her own time and she shared her feelings just like the rest of us parents from town and Hazel Fischer. 4th- HIPPA has absolutely nothing to do with it. She is NOT a nurse, it was not her patient and it was on her own personal, private time. Sounds more like to me, that YOU are invading her personal time. 5th- Everyone in town was trying to find out who the poor child was so we could talk to our children before they heard from someone else. Us, as parents wanted to be able to talk to our children before they went to school. That is our right as parents. If you don't agree, then that is YOUR private business. so maybe you need to stay out of everyone elses and mind your own! Just a thought! This post should have ONLY been directed towards beautiful Haley and her family, about how much that beautiful girl will be missed and how we hope god gives her family the strength to move forward and to be able to get through this horrible time. You should be ashamed of yourself! I am!

      from (I am ashamed of you!), guess I wasn't finished. And her name was only posted after if was confirmed for sure. Post were already circulating on fb from the daughter who's parents rented the house to the beautiful Haley and her mom. She was the first to get the name out so, US as a community could help. So WE could start to provide meals for the family, as well as set up donations. So, please get your story straight before you post but most importantly post where appropriate!
