Caroline Sasaki was walking into her living room in Honolulu on Sunday night when the massive boulder crashed into her home. It had traveled down from a nearby hillside and plowed through a cinderblock wall outside the house, scraping the family's car, before crashing through the living room and into a bedroom, Hawaii News Now reported. Sasaki was more than lucky. The boulder missed her just barely as she walked toward the couch to watch TV. She told the outlet that the family had just moved into the home this month. "I heard the loud boom, and apparently, the boulder passed right in front of me, which I didn't know," she told Hawaii News Now. "I didn't see it. All I heard was the boom and then somebody asking me if I was okay."
