A Statesville family safely escaped after a tree crashes through their mobile home at around 6:15 a.m. Friday.
Tilisa Schuford told Channel 9 she knew the storm was coming and was worried the trees around their home wouldn’t hold up. Because of that, Thursday night she asked her son to sleep in the living room.
It’s a decision that saved his life.
The tree crashed through his bedroom, landing on his bed.
Schuford lives in the home with her fiancé, two sons, daughter and 3-month-old grandson.
They all escaped the home through a window. Her daughter told Channel 9 she had to run back inside, crawling through debris to get her baby who was in another room.
Everyone made it out safely.
The family is now without a home, but the Red Cross is helping them. For safety reasons, they cannot go back inside their home. They only escaped with the clothes they were wearing.

(AP) A Wellford mother who left her baby daughter unattended in a bath tub has been sentenced to four years in prison in the girl's death.
The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports that 22-year-old Mary Ann Williams was sentenced this week after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter and child neglect.
Williams was originally charged with homicide by child abuse after her 10-month-old daughter, Aaliyah, was found unresponsive in a Spartanburg motel room in August 2012.
Emergency workers revived the girl, but she died in a hospital about a week later when she was taken off life support. Prosecutors say Williams left Aaliyah and another baby unattended in a bathtub while she watched television in another room.
