Michelle Childers, 20, and her husband were driving along the Lochsa River in the Idaho wilderness in early September when the freaky incident occured.
The couple was driving down a dead-end road and were on their way back when a limb from a spruce tree came out of nowhere and crashed through the passenger window.
All Michelle remembered was feeling pressure in her neck and asked her husband where the tree limb was…
“He was freaking out and he goes, it’s in your neck,” she said.
The tree branch was 8-inches long and had rammed itself through her neck to her shoulder.
The couple said their goodbyes on the way to a nearby lodge. After almost an hour of driving, they reached a lodge near the Idaho/Montana border and a nurse arranged for Michelle to be flown to a hospital.
Doctors removed the tree limb from Michelle’s neck during a 6-hour surgery. Michelle is one lucky chick and is recuperating at home.
