BENTONVILLE, AR-- Talk about a narrow escape!

A Bentonville family says their storm clean up on Wednesday quickly turned into a close encounter with a downed tree.

Bobeye Holt sent us pictures of the clean up in Bentonville.

She says her husband owns a tree care service.

He brought five of their children out to help finish up the clean up in Bentonville, when another wind gust hit.

She says it ripped five limbs out of a large oak tree that her husband and children happened to be standing under.

Amazingly, the falling limbs didn't hit anyone and everyone is safe.
