Storm topples trees in Cobb County

COBB COUNTY, Ga. -- A falling tree nearly crushed an 11-year-old boy in Cobb County early Friday.

The tree was one of five that fell on Karen Gottschalk's home during the early morning storm. Gottschalk said her son covered his head and prayed when he heard the tree crack and fall through the roof into his bedroom. She said he was saved by his bedpost.

"His face was just covered in blood," Gottschalk said. "You couldn't see one piece of skin. It was just coated in blood."

Within minutes, Gottschalk was able to get her son and daughter out of the house before four more trees came toppling down on it.

"When you look at that, there's no way -- I can't imagine how he survived," Gottschalk.

There were close calls across the city this morning as severe weather ripped through Georgia. Six different homes were reportedly hit by trees, collapsing a roof in Marietta.
