OSSINING, N.Y. -- Coaching baseball might have saved the lives of the Nolan family from a roof collapse.
Bobby Nolan, Alejandra Nolan and nine-year-old Aiden had just left their business, AAA Nolan's Auto Collision at 2 Havell Street, when the roof collapsed at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
The roof collapse, which damaged two cars, was blamed on snow.
"We heard a big bang," Bobby Nolan said. "My wife and kid had just gotten out five minutes before. Then kabang, it was on the ground. The floors upstairs were shaking.
Alejandra said Aiden said it was like an earthquake.
"He was upset," Alejandra Nolan said. "He had his toys in there."
Bobby Nolan said he never knew how heavy snow could be.
"I'm real grateful no one got hurt," Nolan said. "It's a good thing I coach baseball or we would've been in there."
The Nolans have been in business for 19 yeas.
