Gregory Vance was sitting on his front porch with two friends when a severe storm swept through West Virginia. A huge tree came down, trapping Vance and the other men.

The family doesn't have a landline and the storm knocked out cell phone service. Unable to call 911, his daughter Brianna posted a plea for help on Facebook.

"The lightning crashed and hit a tree by our porch and my dad's almost dead," she cried. "He needs an ambulance, please. Please call one for us if you have signal."

A Good Samaritan notified firefighters who freed all three men and took them to the hospital. Gregory suffered from a broken back, ribs and shoulder.

Despite his injuries, Gregory said he's thankful his daughter wasn't hurt.
