Massive Tree Falls on Home, Family Makes it out Alive
GAINESVILLE - A tree falls on a family's home in southwest Gainesville, while they are all inside.
One man, asleep, the tree falling right on his room.
The family knew the tree would soon cause them trouble, but they had no money to remove it from their yard.
So one member of the family told them, if you hear the tree splitting, run.
That's exactly what the family did, getting out in time - "we have our lives and we all made it out alive so that's the most I can hope for." The house has been condmned and the family will have to pay to have the house demolished and removed.
The family is not sure how they will replace the home, and hopes the community can help in any way they can.
The man we spoke to had lived there for 43 years. If you want to contact Kyla Ryan about helping with this story, please email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
