Tree tears through home, family escapes serious injury
ONTARIO, N.Y. (AP) — A family in upstate New York barely escaped serious injury after a tree fell on their mobile home during a storm.
Severe thunderstorms tore through Wayne County Monday, and three bothers where inside their mobile home in the town of Ontario when a tree suddenly collapsed on their roof and caved it in. Thomas Emery says it was a miracle nobody was seriously hurt.
Emery’s brothers were able to get out before their sibling, and all three ran to a neighbor’s house where they called 911. The family’s cat and dog were able to get out, but some kittens are still missing.
The family had to find somewhere else to sleep, with the Red Cross on scene assisting.
Emery says he’s thankful the situation wasn’t worse.
