Brick wall saves man's house and pool from getting hit by tree

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany man says a brick wall kept a large tree from falling into his pool. It did do some damage to his storage shed on Honeysuckle Lane.

Bill Reilly says he and his wife were at home when the winds and the rain started picking up on Friday night.

He heard a loud crackling sound, and that's when he knew something was wrong.

"I came out on my car port and saw the top of  my tree and I said something is not right so I got the flash light and this is what we found," says Albany resident Bill Reilly.

He says the tree knocked down two walls of his storage shed, but did no damage to his house.
