CCTV footage captures US man's near-death experience when huge tree comes crashing down outside his front door

Witness the horrifying moment a California man, named Jon Edwards, is almost killed by a falling tree in Sacramento, US.

Dramatic CCTV footage, from Tuesday (November 26), captures the tree crashing to the ground and narrowly missing Jon, who is seen walking out the front door of his home.

Jon told Newsflare: "I started walking out, I open my umbrella like I usually do and boom! The tree came crashing down on the umbrella and I stood there with a big adrenaline rush.

"I was just completely flabbergasted that happened as I was yelling back to my significant other that the tree fell.

"I just stood there collecting myself."

Jon continued: "The winds in the area were absolutely crazy at the time. The winds knocked down a couple of trees in the neighbourhood.

"My neighbour 'swears' that these things never fall but low and behold...the first six months of moving into this house, a branch falls and nearly kills me."
