Holy Cow! This family was definitely one lucky family. They had a guardian angel looking after them for sure.

Looks like three trees hit them. We've been at a campsite where a tree like this fell on campers.

It is scary. Was at a large campground in southern Colorado a number of years ago when a weather system with no rainstorms but with very high winds came thru. Campground people made everyone in one end of the campground where there were a lot of large spruce trees located move to another end of the campground where there were not. Good foresight. A number of trees large enough to crush an RV fell in that section. Only casualty was a new Ram dually parked near the campground restaurant where a large tree fell across the cab crushing it down level with the bed. Fortunately the people were inside the restaurant eating.
Not something you normally think about.

The man upstairs was definitely looking out for them.
