When crews arrived they determined that the winds broke off the top of a redwood tree that “speared” through the house, trapping the 1-year-old underneath the tree.
Emergency crews quickly worked to rescue six people from the home and immediately started performing life-saving measures on the baby.
Fire officials say the 1-year-old was critically injured but was conscious and breathing when they were taken to the hospital.
