SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A Shreveport man is counting his blessings after he says a tree fell on his home, barely missing him.
The tree fell near the intersection of Belwood and Linwood in Shreveport's Caddo Heights neighborhood just before 8 p.m.

The massive tree was pulled from its roots when it fell onto the home with a family of five inside.
The homeowner, Tadarryl Williams says he's thanking God because it could have been much worse.
"I was out here and I was drinking me a beer and I heard a big crack and a tree just fell down and I was standing right there it almost hit me in my head, and I got up and I ran in the house. Scared me to death, I was standing right there, where the most damage is at... right there," Williams said.
The man did receive some minor bruises from the incident. Thankfully no one was seriously injured. He says they are now looking for a new place to live.
