ATLANTA, GA, September 30, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The Atlanta tree removal
company Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts talks about the recent story in which Laura Hunter, a 49-year-old woman from Colorado, escaped a treacherous flood by clinging to a fallen tree branch.
On August 13, Hunter found herself facing a surge of flood water that devastated her home. The Atlanta tree service experts share that the woman also lost two cats during the freak flood that shook the town of Manitou Springs. They note the flash flood and subsequent mudslide were caused by rapid rainfall that accumulated 1.5 inches of water in just half an hour. Hunter said one moment she was sitting in her cottage, and the next she was fighting for her life while being pulled downstream among debris-filled water.
Grab What You Can During a Flood
While she was eventually recovered by emergency services, the thing that saved her life was a tree that just so happened to be in the right place at the time. The woman grabbed a branch and refused to let go, despite being constantly submerged and having suffered a broken leg and ankle.
According to Gary Robertson, Owner of Yellow Ribbon Tree Experts, "I think it is safe to say that this woman is very fortunate. She was wise to grab hold of the tree. Thankfully, the limb was strong enough to support the pressure, as many trees are uprooted and swept away in floods." The specialists in tree removal service in Atlanta note that if you ever find yourself in a situation like Hunter, latch on to the thickest tree limb you can find and curl your body around it with your arms and legs.
