Also staying in the rental home was Jessica Nelson’s brother Ryan Langerud. He was in a ground-floor bedroom and survived. The tree, a 75-foot Torrey pine on the adjacent property, fell onto the two-story house around 6 a.m. Monday. Wind gusts in the area were reaching 40 mph, according to National Weather Service data. A neighbor told San Diego TV station KSWB that two homeowners had been at odds about whether to have the tree removed.
