ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - A tree fell through a home in Orange County that almost struck a boy sitting on a couch. The incident occurred Sunday night on Westgate Road in Pine Hills.
The homeowner, Elmer Jones, tells us he was working in the yard when the tree came crashing down into his living room. Jones says the tree fell where his son usually sits on the couch, but had just moved to use the computer.
"I wasn't even really thinking about anything until after you really think about what happened," Jones said. "And then you know you get all emotional about it because I'm just so glad and grateful, you know, that he did not get hurt."
Jones says his family just closed on the home a month ago. The family is staying with friends while crews work to repair their home.
