Woman narrowly avoids being crushed by giant boulder
A woman barely survived when a giant boulder crashed into her home in Hawaii, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.
Security camera footage captured the moment a 5-foot-high spherical boulder crashed into a cinder block wall, narrowly missing Caroline Sasaki as she walked down the hallway.
Officials said the boulder hit the outer wall of the building, the living room, and then another wall before finally stopping in the bedroom.
“All I heard was a crash as the glass of the sliding door cracked, so I backed away,” said Sasaki, 65.
“One more step and I probably wouldn’t be here”
None of the four people at the Honolulu home were injured when the boulder hit just before midnight on Saturday, but a nearby car was damaged, according to local news.
“I didn’t watch the video, but they said if I took one more step, I probably wouldn’t be here,” she told local TV station KITV 4.
It is unclear what caused the boulder to roll down a nearby hill, but the incident reportedly occurred after several days of heavy rain.
“There was so much adrenaline there that I just fell for a while,” neighbor Craig Tomita told Hawaii News Now.
Ms. Sasaki and her family only lived in the house for about a week before a boulder hit their house.
The boulder was reportedly still inside the house on Monday.
