Falling tree misses Virgin Mary
The statue was not damaged.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (WTVD) -- A weather-related incident in Texas over the weekend is getting lots of attention on social media websites.

A storm Saturday blew over a large tree in a woman's yard, but it missed a statue of the Virgin Mary.

The statue was left standing upright next to the tree trunk.

The homeowner is calling it a miracle that the tree didn't hit the statue or her house. She's now working to get the tree removed and her fence repaired.
