A MOTHER and daughter are lucky to be alive after a large tree branch fell on their car during the storm that ravaged the North Coast on Saturday.

According to IPSS Medical Rescue paramedic Paul Herbst, the family was on their way to Lucky Linton farm when the extreme wind caused a huge branch to break off and fall on their vehicle as they approached the farm.

“Fortunately the mother and child were not injured and emergency services were able to remove them from the vehicle.

“Motorists are advised to be alert when driving in unpredictable weather conditions we have been experiencing lately,” said Herbst.
