Rescuers were called around 10 a.m. Tuesday to Central Park West near 62nd Street.
A witness told WABC that a woman briefly lost consciousness and people tried to lift branches off her. The witness said woman was with two children in a stroller and one in a carrier.
The ages of the children were not known.
Online images show the large uprooted tree on the ground, blocking the road.
