Raleigh, North Carolina-A large tree fell on the house during the rain and winds from Tropical Storm Florence in North Raleigh. The incident happened on Friday night.
By the time a large tree fell on the house, five people were asleep inside.
The emergency team got a report about the incident at around 12:15 a.m. on Farm Ridge Road. The fallen tree frightened the whole family.
The man was sleeping in the bedroom. He was trapped in his bedroom by the crash. Fortunately, he didn’t get injured.
He got free by the firefighters and walked out of the house on his own. The man is believed to be in his 60s.
The man was sleeping in the mattress. Due to its little dampening effect, he could escape serious injuries when the tree came down on him.
First firefighters worked on stabilizing the tree to prevent further damage. The man’s wife and a young girl were also asleep in the master room.
The wife was taken to an ambulance for evaluation.
Nobody from family members was taken to the hospital. Assistant Chief William Schultz described the incident as ‘’kind of miraculous’’.
The tree will remain on the house at least for overnight.
