    A Boston man is paralyzed from the waist down for the rest of his life after a tree branch fell on him during last week's nor'easter.

    Scott Berry was snowblowing outside of his Roslindale home on March 8 when a branch came down on him. His daughter was among the first to rush to his aid.

    "The first thing I heard was 'Caitlyn, Caitlyn, wake up, a tree just fell on your father,'" Caitlyn Berry said. "The first thing he said was 'I can't feel my legs.'"

    Scott never heard or saw the branch coming, as he was wearing headphones to drown out the sound of the snowblower. The snapped limb weighed too much for the family and the EMTs who arrived on the scene to lift.

    "They ended up having to call the fire department because the people in the ambulance couldn't lift it off of him," said Caitlyn Berry.

    Thousands of dollars raised through a Gofundme page and the Greg Hill foundation will go towards the family's medical costs and modifying the home to be handicap accessible.
