A tree crashed into a mobile home park in Tampa with a man, his wife, and a 9-month-old baby inside.

The mobile home off E. Hillsborough Ave. was destroyed, but the three people inside were all ok after being transported to the hospital and released.

The man said he was up and getting ready for work when the tree crashed through.

"I started screaming, 'oh God' and then everything went silent. I could barely hear my wife ... just faint. She just kept screaming my name," said D'Angelo Dixon., the man who lived in the mobile home.

He says it went dark and he got out through a window before breaking back into the house to save his wife and child.

He says they will have to start over, but thankfully they are alive and ok.
