CENTRAL PARK — Sasha Blair-Goldensohn, the man who was hit by a 100-pound tree branch while walking in Central Park this summer, was transferred to an upstate rehabilitation clinic Sept. 4, reports the Daily News.

Blair-Goldensohn, 33, was moved to the Helen Hayes Hospital in West Havershaw where he remained in critical condition. The Manhattan father of two worked as a Google engineer. He was hit on the head July 29 by a broken tree limb.

"He's getting better," a source told the News. "But he's going to be there for a long time."

Blair-Goldensohn suffered brain swelling and lung damage as a result of the accident.
