A young man narrowly missed being struck by a falling tree outside his family's home in Janesville, Wisconsin, last week.

Lori Sheetz-Blank's home surveillance camera recorded the moment her son, Timothy Sheetz, stepped off the front porch in the heavy wind and rain.

The video captures him quickly turning around and darting back under cover as a large tree falls across his path in the front yard.

Blank wrote on Facebook that her son was also lucky as he could have been electrocuted by power lines that were downed as the tree fell.

"Thank you God for keeping him safe and giving us one more story to share," she wrote.
