The mother while talking to Fox News said, "He would have died if the roof fell on him. It was just my instinct to run away when I saw the roof falling down. Something made me look back, and I saw him there, so I just ran over and grabbed him."
One of the builders told the news outlet, "There was no water-proofing in the original plans for the house. All of the rain has made the ceiling weaker. It is because of poor construction."
"People should be aware of this when they buy homes, as one day it could fall down, just like what happened here," that builder added.
