A family in Westmoreland County was having a gender reveal party to celebrate a pregnancy when, out of nowhere, a tree fell on the dad - to - be . Filed Under: Mount Pleasant, Ross Guidotti, Tree Falls , Westmoreland County.

Gender reveal parties are wrong in so many ways. The one with the father shooting at a target filled with colored powder, exploding with a puff when hit, so so wrong. So if the tree falls on the dad , it's a boy .if I were the pregnant lady, I'd run like hell.

"It's not the way I wanted the day to go," he added. "It was our gender reveal (party). I'm 23 and I've never had a broken bone in my life."

Zack broke his ankle and fibula. But somehow, no one else was hurt or trapped by the tree.

With the help of a floor jack and chainsaw, Zack's family freed him.

"There was a really big limb that was inches above my head," Zack said. "It's kind of unbelieveable that it didn't break my neck, or just come down and kill me."

Zack says he owes his life to a Jeep that was parked nearby, which prevented the branch from completely crushing him.

"The Jeep is what kept some of the weight off me," he said. "I'll probably be laid up for the rest of summer."

The Muellerleile's say utlitity crews recently cut away some of the branches of the tree, but they're not sure that it had anything to do with what happened.
