Telephone wires save house as tree falls
Members of the Guyana Fire Service and the City Council last evening responded to a call for help from residents of Campbellville, after an old tree fell on a home aback of the GuyOil gas station on Sheriff Street.
Fortunately, none of the five occupants of the house was at home at the time of the incident which, according to an official at the City Council, occurred around 15:00hrs.
According to an eyewitness, it was several phone wires that “broke the fall of the tree”.
The man explained that had it not been for those telephone wires, the impact of the tree onto the house would have been more severe, resulting in more damages, especially since the wooden structure is very old.
“If wasn’t for them phone lines, that tree would’ve hit that house more hard. The phone wires break the fall,” the man said.
The man further lamented that “the tree fall right across the passageway and people could’ve been passing or something. Luckily nobody didn’t went there”.
Kaieteur News was unable to speak to the occupants of the home.
