Cigarette saved life

Apa dah jadi ? What in the world is happening...... cigar saved life and tree killing people.

New campaign "Start Smoking" and "Cut Tree - preserve life"


A cigarette may have saved Brenda Comer's life Monday morning.

Around 11 a.m., Comer finished doing the dishes in the kitchen of her Westover Circle home, just off Cherry Road. She stepped outside to light up.

At that moment, an 80-foot-tall oak tree crashed through the roof, felled by the day's raging winds. The behemoth tree crashed through the roof, right across the sink where Brenda had been washing dishes.

Brenda and her husband, Franky, both 53, stood in their smashed-up home Tuesday afternoon staring at a gaping gash through their roof. The hole split the kitchen and living room of the house, now full of branches.

"I told him, 'Honey, I know you fuss at me for smoking, but today it saved my life,'" Brenda said.
