    Is it me or do those roots look like they have been cut? Makes me wonder if there are some buried cables that caused the root system to fail.

    A friend of mine had a tree from a local church fall on his car as he drove past, he suffered quite a serious injury but survived (with brain trauma), and as I said to him later God just warned you!

    That 1st video, to have missed the house — and put it through the open gate — was incredibly lucky. Lucky that it didn't twist, going down. Also, he just stood there — waaaaay too close — for the sake of his personal safety.

    We have a new winner. A last second push of the tree trunk, an extremely lucky landing in between two guys, and then an inexplicable pinata-breaking moment where everyone rushes to...grab a piece of the tree?

    It appears to have caught the roof over the entrance doors to the building and that diverted the direction of fall - - - Luckily!
