90-year-old Natchitoches man escapes serious injury when tree falls into his home


NATCHITOCHES, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A 90-year-old man escaped serious injury after a tree fell into his house this morning as Hurricane Laura made her up the central and northwestern corridor of Louisiana.

Thomas Boone, a former Math teacher at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, was inside his home when the huge tree in the backyard of his DeSoto Street home fell, but managed to escape with only a few cuts on his arm.

It happened just after 9:30 a.m. Thursday, and he went across the street to a neighbor’s home until his daughter and granddaughter arrived.
