Tree Falls on Gainesville Home
Published May 28th, 2012
Five people were home early Monday afternoon when a tree fell on their home.
None of the 5 Sercey's were hurt which the family says is remarkable after stating there was a two year old boy, a disabled man in his mid 70's, and a woman who was nine months pregnant inside the home.
Geneva Sercy was in the house when the tree fell.
She says, "If it would've hit the living room two to three people would've died. But thank God it hit the porch. I can get a porch back but I can't get my family back."
This is not the first time they've had tree trouble.
In July of 2003, another tree fell in their yard totaling a vehicle and carport.
GRU cut off electricity to the home due to rainy conditions and exposed wires.
