Foreclosure turned out to be a good thing for this family.

A large boulder tumbled down a Provo [Utah] hillside Saturday and bounced through the second-story wall of a house before crashing through the floor into a basement-level garage…

Neighbor Dave Nagel was working in his yard when he heard a rumbling sound. He looked up to see the rock bounding down the hillside. Nagel said he watched as the rock bounced off the hill and went airborne, crashing through a second-story wall and off the dining room ceiling before smashing a wall and dropping through the floor into the garage. He said the jagged boulder appeared to be 8 feet to 10 feet wide.

The house was empty, luckily, so  there were no injuries.
