Motherly Instinct Saves Infant Seconds Before Tree Demolishes Their House

Never underestimate the power of intuition. And always pay attention to what your body is trying to tell you. Because sometimes, your body can sense something what your mind and eyes can’t.

Just take what happened to Tanya Tyler of Spokane, Washington.

Tanya was folding clothes in the living room while her 9-month-old baby was sitting beside her when she suddenly felt a sense of foreboding.

“As I was setting the laundry down, I actually heard in my mind, like instinctively, maybe, Run!” Tyler told KREM News.

Although nothing seemed wrong, Tanya followed her instincts and escaped out of the living room with her child.


And true enough, a moment later, she heard a huge crash. When she opened her eyes, the house was full of dust, she was shocked to see the damage to the area she was occupying with her baby just a few seconds earlier.

She found out later that a mid-size tree from the yard collapsed, ravaging the roof tiles and insulation.


If she didn’t listen to the voice inside her head, Tanya and her child would have been seriously hurt.

Good thing Tanya followed her instinct that made her leave the room to the kitchen in time.


Aside from they’re covered with sawdust, nothing worse happened to the mom and daughter. Tanya was thankful their life was spared from what could have been a fatal accident.

“So if I was just a couple seconds later, who knows where I would be.

So am I grateful? So grateful. So grateful at this moment for my life, for the baby’s life.”


The Tyler family is staying with their relatives for the time being because it would take a longer time to repair all the damages in their house.
