ATLANTA (CBS46) — A giant tree crashed through a northeast Atlanta home Monday morning, splitting the property in half and trapping a man inside.

It happened just before 7 a.m. along Old Ivy Road NE. According to fire officials, the tree reportedly fell onto the home which had three residents inside. Two of the residents managed to get out of the house unharmed, but a man, who was in his bedroom at the time, was pinned down by the falling oak and suffered injuries. Several firefighters responded to the scene, managing to extract the man just after 8 a.m.
