Falling tree 'only just missed boy by inches'

Speaking to the Evening Standard, Jacki Park, who lives nearby said:

I heard a crash and thought it was a car. The sound was terrifying. My heart stopped when I looked out. The tree was lying across the road and the woman’s legs were sticking out from underneath.

There was a little boy sitting on the wall and the branch was almost on top of him, just inches from his legs. I don’t know how it missed him. It’s a miracle.
