Tree in Bathroom Full-Facebook

Raymond was having trouble falling asleep on Tuesday night while thunderstorms were wracking the city. His lack of sleep may have ended up saving his life, however, when a tree speared through the roof of his bathroom.

The Austin, Indiana man’s alarm went off at 5:30AM, waking him up for work. But due to his restlessness during the night, he uncharacteristically decided to hit the snooze button. A few minutes later, he heard a crash coming from somewhere in his darkened house.

Raymond entered his bathroom to find that a limb from a 40-foot-tall pin oak tree had fallen through the roof of his ceiling in the exact spot where he typically brushes his teeth in the morning. He says that if he hadn’t stayed in bed, he would almost have definitely been struck by the bough.

“I actually stood up to start getting ready for work but decided to let the snooze go off one more time,” says Raymond. “Laid back down and this happened just minutes afterwards.”

“Good Lord was looking out for me for sure,” Raymond added.
