Millions of people along the East Coast are still trying to clean up after Friday's storm. Now new video is coming to light of an extremely close call for first responders in New York.

Firefighters were called for an accident where a tree fell on a car in Hyde Park. While they were on the scene a massive tree branch fell on a power line above Route 9G, causing a big flash and blue and white sparks. Everyone on the ground took cover.

Thankfully the power line didn't snap and fall onto the wet road. The line was also strong enough to hold up the tree limb, and keep it from landing on crews and vehicles on the ground.

Amazingly no one was hurt in the incident, or the car crash.
