WKYT reported strong storms rolled through Lake Cumberland State Resort Park early Sunday morning.

A tree fell into the cabin, knocking it off its foundation, and nearly onto its side.

A family of six was inside at the time -- three adults and three children.

People in a neighboring cabin helped them crawl out of a window to safety.

“It’s very lucky because the cabin -- once the tree had went in the cabin, it took it off its foundation and behind it was quite a drop,” HM Bottom, Russell County Emergency Manager, said.

Four people, two adults and two children, were taken to the hospital.

Everyone is expected to recover.
