A tragedy was imminent this Friday at 9 am, in the centre of Caniço, near the Junta de Freguesia do Caniço.

A medium-sized tree fell into the public highway and, according to AgoraMadeira,  it narrowly missed an official of the Santa Cruz Chamber, who was currently cleaning the place, but also a fire-fighter.

The fire-fighter had just parked near the spot where the tree fell and did not show signs of being scared, considering that the tree fell close to the car. The fire-fighter had a chainsaw in the car and even began to cut the tree,  before the arrival of the Municipal fire-fighters of Santa Cruz arrived at the scene.
