TYRONZA, Ark. -- Sixty-five mile per hour winds snapped a tree right in half Wednesday morning, sending it sprawling on top of Richard Snow's mobile home and crushing it like a tine can.

He was trapped inside.

"I just sat up and there it was. I didn't know it was a tree at first."

Snow said he was sound asleep when he heard a loud boom and the tree came crashing down on top of it. Thankfully, he was able to escape through a small window on the other side of his home.

"He was standing inside a window looking through the tree at us and told us he was alright, and we got him out through the window," said TryzonaFire Chief David Wood.

Incredibly, despite the high winds in the area, no one was hurt.
