ST. GEORGE – A woman was given a rude awakening early Saturday morning when a boulder the size of a truck smashed into the back of her home.
The St. George Communications Center received a call at 2 a.m., Saturday, from a home on South Acantilado Drive, which is located in a subdivision situated along the bottom of the eastern slope of Foremaster Ridge.
Dispatch was told a large boulder had smashed into a corner of the home where a bedroom was located. A woman was sleeping in the bedroom at the time and was injured by the impact, yet managed to call 911 for aid. She was transported to Intermountain Southwest Region’s Dixie Regional Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries that include a broken jaw and a broken sternum.
As of Monday morning, the boulder had yet to be removed from the side of the home.
