A family was able to escape after two trees fell into a Dilworth home early Tuesday morning. The trees came down after midnight on the home on Linganore Place in the Dilworth area of Charlotte.
Two adults and two children were in the house at the time. A woman told Channel 9 one tree landed in front of the house and the second landed in the back bedroom where her son slept.
Her husband ran back when he heard the noise and was able to get his son.
The family was able to get out safely.
Officials said they will be using a crane Tuesday morning to lift the trees off the house.
A man died in an early morning house fire in Lenoir, Lenoir Fire Department officials said.
The fire broke out shortly before midnight Tuesday on Grove Avenue in Lenoir.
Firefighters said one woman was able to escape the home but a man died after firefighters fought their way inside and pulled him out.
Chief Ken Briscoe said a firefighter was injured after slipping on a ladder. He said the injuries were minor.
The fire was so intense it damaged a home across the street.
Fire investigators said they haven't determined a cause but said a wood stove may have played a role.
Firefighters said the State Bureau of Investigation will be out Tuesday morning to help with the investigation into what started this fire.
Dozens of passengers on a Virgin Atlantic flight from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport to London were stranded on the tarmac for six hours, then stuck in the terminal overnight, NBC News reports.
The flight originally was supposed to leave at 6:30 p.m., but nearly six hours later, the pilot announced the plane wasn't going to take off. Passengers were sent to the terminal for the night.
Traveler Helena Shackleton of Yorkshire, England, said passengers were "really frustrated."
"Our luggage is still on there because they said there is no one qualified to take it off. It's a complete disaster," Shackleton said.
Felix Kunze of Brooklyn said the airline gave passengers $15 vouchers for McDonald's. He also said on Twitter that the delay was caused by a technical issue.
NBC News said airline officials did not return a request to comment on the delay.News Source: MedleyStory More Local News Stories
