On Monday, Maurice Henao was walking to his car across Pacific Coast Highway outside his home when he stopped to answer his cell phone when suddenly he heard a rumbling…that rumbling was a rockslide.
A giant boulder that came down from the hillside crushed his car and landed where he would have been sitting if he hadn't stopped to answer his phone. "That rock is the size of the whole roof... could've hurt anybody or killed somebody. I feel like it's almost a 'Final Destination' move, but in real life," he said.
With one car totaled and another damaged, it was hard not to let some catastrophic thoughts creep in on what could have been.
Maurice is handling the scare with good humor and is hoping to extend his luck.
