The couple whose baby narrowly escaped injury from a falling tree get a little help from the people of Brisbane...
Bad luck and bad weather certainly seems to follow the Abbott family from Taneh Merah around!
They've definitely had their share of bad luck over the last couple of years with cyclones in Townsville, but nothing could have prepared them for the destruction to their home when a tree came crashing through their roof on Sunday night to land on their baby's crib during the wild storm that hit Brisbane.
When the storm began, Elicia and Cole Abbott certainly did not expect it to end with a $60,000 repair bill, and their babies room totally destroyed by not only the tree, but the ensuing wind and rain as well.
Luckily for the Abbotts, just minutes before the tree crashed through the house and onto her crib, baby Penelope had been moved out of her cot narrowly avoiding serious injury!!
But now the family has nothing left in Penelope's room. Her Cot, her clothes, her stuffed animals..All gone!
Luckily for Elicia, Cole and baby Penelope, Michael and the team from My Baby Warehouse has come to the rescue...
They have offered the Abbotts a Love and Care Vulu Cot, a Love and Care Chest Changer and A Love and Care Elite Glider Chair.
Listen to the Abbotts reaction below.
