NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) -- A New Bern man suffered a head injury after strong winds blew down a large billboard that struck a mobile home where he was working.
Forty-four-year-old Gary Henderson said he was helping a friend move furniture Saturday afternoon when the billboard toppled into three trailers, sending pieces of metal debris flying through the air.
Henderson was treated at the scene by emergency responders and then was taken by his family to a hospital in Havelock for further evaluation.
His friend, Andrew Owens, was not injured.
Henderson said he was surprised to be alive after the incident.
The billboard, advertising a local marina, reads: "Anything is possible."
