Man avoids getting crushed by collapsed awning at North Carolina gas station

News

A man in Avery County, North Carolina, had to run for his life to escape a collapsing awning. 

The event was captured on camera as heavy snow caused the awning to collapse at a gas station in Linville.

The awning crushed a car and nearly missed the man. 

The owner of the station says the awning was designed to hold 20 pounds per-square-foot of snow. 

He says he has never seen a gas station come down like the way the one did in North Carolina.
