Tree falls over in Netherlands narrowly avoiding woman and baby

A woman and baby narrowly avoided a tree as it was brought crashing down by gale force winds in the Netherlands.

CCTV capture the moment it slammed into the ground in the village of Horst.

The woman does not seem to notice the tree toppling over as she passes with a baby in her pram. It then crashes down next to them.

Storms driven by 90 miles per hour winds disrupted much of northern Europe, with two deaths elsewhere in the Netherlands due to falling trees.
