Incredible: Boy survives after huge tree crashed on him








Wasiu Adenikan, an SS3 student of  Ekpan Secondary School, Warri, Delta state could be described as a cat with nine lives. No one knew he could survive after a huge tree in his school premises suddenly came crashing and landed on him,  on September 21.
A source in the school told The Journalist Blog that the incident nearly threw the school into mourning.
According to the source who prefers anonymity: “We were all preparing to close for the day around few minutes past 1pm yesterday when the tree fell. There were many students under the tree, and some were even using the tree as their swing. Luckily, they all fled except one senior student. He was quickly rushed to the hospital by some teachers after struggling to remove him from the fallen branches”
The source added that the tree which looked very much lively, “fell on its own”
Wasiu, a native of Iyana Ipaja in Lagos state and whose parents is based in Warri, narrated the story to The Journalist Blog.
Wasiu said he and one other friend were passing under the tree when it started falling.
His words: “I did not see the tree when it was falling. Me and my friend were talking, and passing under the tree. I heard a sound, and I didn’t know it was the wood. The friend I was talking to ran away. So when I looked back, I saw the tree falling, and hit me. I fell down and I was rushed to the hospital”
He later regained consciousness in the hospital.
Our source also confirmed that the boy had fully recovered and had resumed school.
