Who Knew Fallen Trees Can Stand Back Up?

This I didn’t know. Beware loons if you came across a fallen tree. Evidently, they can spring back up and crush you, like some horror movie. Who friggin knew? A kid in Queensland is lucky to be alive after he was playing around a fallen tree when it sprang back up and crushed him under its roots. Fortunately, his quick thinking family members were able to use nearby vehicles and chains to lift the tree. He’s OK but had to nurse broken ribs and femur, two collapsed lungs and a squashed heart. Luckily, if a tree falls in Queensland you can hear a scream!
