2 Year Old Boy Comes Within Inches of Being Crushed

This is the miraculous moment a two-year-old boy comes within inches of being crushed to death - by a falling palm tree.

Tong Gosungnern had been playing with friends on the road outside his parents' home in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand, on Saturday afternoon. CCTV cameras captured the terrifying moment a 30 ft high old palm tree came loose at base crashing towards the children below.

As the youngsters see the tree, they scatter across the road. But curious Tong looked up in awe at the falling tree, rooted to the spot. Incredibly, the tree missed his head by a whisker as he stood transfixed, the palm tree hitting the road and bouncing at his side before his mother, Jane, scooped him up in her arms.

Jane said: 'This was an old palm tree, so big. Nobody knew it would fall down.
