Family Escapes Injury As Tree Falls on SUV

A Connecticut family escaped injury after a huge tree fell on their SUV during a storm at Satan's Kingdom State Recreation Area in New Hartford Friday afternoon.

The Bermudez family was in the vehicle as hail fell during an afternoon storm. One of the family members was taking video of the hail with a cell phone when the tree came crashing down.

"So we were filming and then you know we were like and then we heard a lightning strike and then the tree came down on the windshield," Brandon Bermudez said. "If we were like a little few inches to the side, there could have been casualties."

The family was at the park tubing on the Farmington River.
