Woman rescued from storm-damaged garage

Firefighters rescued a north suburban woman when she became trapped in her garage during Monday’s storm.

Thea Shepard of Glenview was unloading groceries from her car when a tree fell on the garage roof, which came crashing down on the back of her car.

She was afraid the whole structure would come down on top of her.  But she had her cell phone with her and she called 911.

The 911 dispatcher kept her on the line until firefighters arrived to rescue her.

She was not injured.
