Woman Dies After Being Struck By Stone Gargoyle Outside Historic South Loop Church

Secon Presbyterian Church at 1936 S. Michigan (via DNAinfo)
A very sad story (DNAinfo):
In a freak accident, the head of a stone gargoyle fell from the steeple of a historic South Loop church Thursday afternoon, striking and killing a 34-year-old mother of two who was set to get married later this year, authorities said.  
Sarah Bean was walking to lunch with her fiancé at noon Thursday when the tragedy occurred. She was passing the 140-year-old Second Presbyterian Church at 1936 S. Michigan Ave. when the stone gargoyle hit her in the head, authorities said.
Thoughts and prayers to her family.
