      Tree falls, lands in couple's bed

      The powerful winds were to blame when a tree crashed into one family's home in Marquette Township, crashing into their bed.

      A tree in the backyard of Bob Beckman's Montgomery St. home fell and crashed through the upstairs bedroom. Bob and his wife were at work when this happened, between 10 and 10:30 a.m. Nobody was injured, and Beckman says a neighbor called him and alerted him to the damage to his home.

      "I've never seen anything like that," said Beckman. "It's a scary situation to come home and find a tree down the middle of your bed. I am going to play the lotto today; someone was watching over us today."

      Workers said that until the wind dies down, the danger of the rest of the tree collapsing is still present. The house is unsafe to stay in, and work on the home could take up to a month to complete.
