Some mountain climbers got the scare of their life when a huge, tabular boulder came flying down the mountain and barely missed striking the cameraman and then another person. It occurred at the base camp for Spantik, a mountain in the Spantik-Sosbun Mountains of Northern Pakistan. Fair warning: there is a (well justified) expletive in there. Try watching it at 1/4 speed to really see what’s happening.
The rock at left travelled nearly a mile down the slope and picked up some significant velocity before impacting a house, hitting the back wall and damaging the ceiling before dropping through the floor into the garage and damaging the garage door. In an often-overlook advantage of the current financial crisis, the house was currently in foreclosure and therefore not occupied at the time of the damage.
