A 75-foot tree toppled onto an apartment in Westwood on Friday, narrowly missing a female resident who was lying in bed, officials said.
The large tree crashed through the second-story of the apartment building, located at 617 S. Kelton Ave., at about 12:14 p.m., the Los Angeles Fire Department reported. The tree just missed falling on top of the woman by three feet, officials said.
No one was injured, but 16 students were evacuated as a precaution, LAFD reported.
Four units in the apartment building were red tagged and deemed unsafe.
