    • A family in the Oakhurst area said a tree uprooted
    • It crashed into the living room, on top of three children on the couch
    • A 3-year-old remains in critical condition 

    A Tulsa family waits for a 3-year-old to recover after storms uprooted a tree, sending it into their mobile home.

    Penny Whitaker said her ex-husband called her Thursday night when the tree crashed into the living room, landing on 9, 7 and 3-year-old children. 

    The older children were able to get out; they tried to lift the tree off the 3-year-old. 

    They could not free the child, but the father and another family member freed him; he became responsive after his rescue. 

    The child is now in critical condition in the hospital; the family is waiting for updates from doctors after testing. 

    FOX23 remains in touch with the family as doctors work.
