A boulder has smashed through the wall of a house and ended up in a bedroom, giving one woman a very unexpected wake up call.
The drama unfolded in the middle of the night in St George in Utah after the boulder rolled down a steep slope and into the property owned by Scot and Wanda Denhalter.
Scot wasn't home at the time. But neighbours said they could hear his wife screaming after the boulder crashed into her side of the bed.
Despite being injured, she found still managed to call the emergency services.
Wanda suffered a fractured sternum. Her husband joked that with her jaw also wired shut, he won't get the full story about what happened for a while.
Scot says when they bought the property he warned his wife that something like this could happen as the house was built below a cliff.
