(Scroll down for video) A very tragic accident took the life of a young mother of two children.

34-year-old Sara Bean of Illinois, who works as a nurse, was talking with her fiance when she was suddenly hit by a piece of art.

The art piece was on the Second Presbyterian Church building on 1900 block of South Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

Police took photos of the broken piece of artwork, which fell on the woman’s head and then to the ground. Bean was transported to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The family of the victim said that Bean was the mother of two boys, who are 10 and 14 years old. Bean worked at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

She lived across the street of the church and was going to get married soon. Her brother Michael Willis said: “Anybody could depend on her. She was very dependable, very loved, and we’re going to miss her.”
