A Welsh woman was in the process of closing The Star pub during a severe storm when she took a moment for a smoke break. That cigarette likely saved the woman’s life.
CCTV footage shows the moment a woman narrowly avoided being hit by a falling tree in a pub beer garden amid strong winds from Storm Arwen.
Cheryl Pound had the lucky escape while having a cigarette break after closing The Star pub in Bridgend where she works.
Footage from the pub, in Market Street, captured the moment the tree fell just feet away from her.
You can see the video at the link. It’s really crazy. I do, however, give Cheryl huge props for grabbing her beer as the tree fell.
