Indiana man narrowly escaped being impaled by tree trunk after hitting the snooze button

Here's definitive proof that being lazy can save your life. How? well, just ask this man who rolled over to the sound of his alarm and hit snooze to get an extra five minutes of sleep.

You see, if Raymond Bowling from Indiana had gotten out of bed when he was supposed to, there's a very good chance he would not be here today.

It all started on Wednesday morning after Mr Bowling's alarm clock went off. Instead of getting out of bed, he did what most people do, HIT THE SNOOZE BUTTON! It was, however, the exact moment an enormous tree trunk crashed through the roof of his home – right into the spot where he would have been brushing his teeth.

Uploading the shocking image onto Facebook, Raymond said: ‘What I’m dealing with this morning…

‘I actually stood up to start getting ready for work but decided to let the snooze go off one more time.

‘Laid back down and this happened just minutes afterwards. Good Lord was looking out for me for sure. #Savedbythesnooze’.

The post received more than 300 messages of concern from family and friends who couldn’t believe how lucky Raymond had been.

The falling branch plunged through his home as a result of the severe weather which tore through the Midwest earlier this week.
