Tree on house traps woman inside

Posted: Updated:

A tree fell on a house in the 500 block of Church Street in northwest Atlanta Tuesday morning.

Cynthia Moore was inside watching television when it happened.

"I was in mybed watching TV. I was wide awake contemplating whether or not I was going to go where I had to go today," said Moore. "The next thing I know I heard a big boom noise and I ran into my bathroom because I have a bathroom in my bedroom."

Moore was home alone when it happened.

"I hid in the bathroom but couldn't see anything because everything was dark. The attic ceiling started falling in my bedroom and I'm like, I don't know where to go. I just sat there and just stayed where I could stay."

When two Atlanta police officers arrived, they realized they couldn't get Moore out the front door because of the tree.

"I was afraid, but I had to keep calm because there was nothing I could do. I just asked God to look out for me," Moore said.

The officers safely got Moore out through a back door. She was not injured.
