ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany woman is being treated at a hospital right now after the roof in her home collapsed on her tonight. 

Family members say when they got back from church, 28-year old Chssey Evans went inside her home at 957 Holloway Avenue and noticed the ceiling was sagging. She was trying to remove her computer and other items from the living room about 9:15 when the roof collapsed onto her back.


"The whole piece just collapsed on her, knocked her on the couch,” said William Jones, Evans Stepfather. “So, I had to along with her husband had to get that off her so we could get her out of there. So, it's just a mess."

Evans' husband, stepfather, and 4-year old son were also inside but were not hurt. Evans was taken by ambulance to Phoebe Putney.
The collapse left water damage throughout the home. The family says they're not sure what caused the collapse or whether the roof is in danger of falling in other parts of the home.
