Crane Topples onto Eunice Home, Woman Inside

A big cleanup on the streets of Eunice today, after a crane, there for tree-trimming, fell onto a home. It made for a real mess. It all happened around one this afternoon on East Vine Street, and get this, there was a woman inside that house when it all happened and she says she's lucky to be alive.

Tree limbs were all that were left to be cleaned up after a crane flipped onto Latoya Jordan's home this afternoon.

"I just heard a loud noise. I jumped up, and ran to the bathroom. I felt there was a little trembling, but that was it, it was very scary, very," said Jordan.

Jordan, who is also five months pregnant, was not injured. She just had the scare of a lifetime.

"We're fine. My heart rate was high, but the baby is fine," said Jordan.

Cranes were in the area trimming trees at a business behind the house when the ground gave way. Both supports on the right side of the crane sank into the ground, causing the crane to topple onto the house, taking part of the tree with it. The garage was destroyed and crews spent several hours cleaning up the debris. As for Jordan, she'll be staying with her parents.
