A 7-year-old Houston boy witnessed his mother getting crushed by a tree branch as the two walked outside their home, MyFoxHouston.com reported.

When the branch snapped, it caused a powerline to fall with it, which prevented paramedics from assisting her immediately, the report said. She later died. The boy reportedly ran to a bus stop and alerted the school bus driver who contacted 911.

The region has been getting hit with severe weather. 

Family members of the 52-year-old woman said the boy was recovering from his injuries at Texas Children's Hospital.
