Norwood man says God's grace saved him from falling tree

During Monday night’s storm, Norwood resident Robert Smith was on his front porch just as a nearby tree fell, narrowly missing him and crunching his newly paid off car. He told Fox 19 he barely had time to get out of the way and survived by the grace of God. "I am extremely lucky. I am touched by an angel. I was just touched by God. The car is smashed, the car is under here, and the truck is under this mess, but I wasn't," says Smith. Smith is just one property owner of dozens in Norwood reporting damage as a result of Monday night's storms.” Click here to see a video of the tree and Mr. Smith’s interview.
