A mother of two was killed just blocks from her home, her stunned boyfriend standing next to her, when she was hit by a piece of a gargoyle that broke off the tower of a historic church in the South Loop on Thursday.
The decorative stone piece fell from the Second Presbyterian Church in the 1900 block of South Michigan just after noon, hitting Sarah Bean, 34.
Bean, of the 2000 block of South State, was waiting to cross the street with her boyfriend, Lance Johnson, when it happened. They were heading out to lunch, her family said.
