Tuesday, July 28, 2015, 4:52 PM – A 20-year-old college student from Long Island, New York is counting her blessings after a 5,000-pound tree crashed through her ceiling and landed on her bed while she was sleeping in it. Authorities say Stephanie Epstein wasn’t crushed to death because she was lying on her side at the time of impact.
It took rescue crews five hours to cut Epstein free.
Epstein, who is on summer break from SUNY Binghampton University, suffered multiple injuries but no broken bones.
She is currently being treated at a local hospital, where she is in stable condition.
