Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Anglie Hightowers said they received a call at 6pm local time (11pm BST).

They were told a tree had crashed through the roof of the man’s Greenboro home and trapped him.

Emergency crews rushed to the home, but blocked roads and downed power lines added complications to the journey.

Hurricane Michael has left extensive damage in the area, with broken and uprooted trees and power lines down.

Vance Beu, 29, also had a tree punch a whole in his roof, in the apartment he was staying in with his mother.
