AUSTIN, Ind. (WDRB) -- A southern Indiana man says hitting the snooze button his alarm clock may have saved his life. 

Raymond Bowling snapped a photo of a tree branch that crashed through the ceiling of his bathroom in Austin, Indiana. Bowling says he normally hits the snooze button once, but he hit it twice Wednesday morning. 

If he had not done that, Bowling says he most likely would have been brushing his teeth in the exact spot where the limb hit. 

Thankfully, there was no other damage to his home.
