He got out of the car to take a phone call moments before the car was crushed by a huge boulder. Mauricio Henao told broadcaster KTLA 5 that he had just parked on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, IN California, when the phone rang and dropped. It was at that moment that she heard the “clap” of the rocks on the hill behind him starting to slide.

“I was in the driver’s seat, I got out, I got a call and shortly afterwards the car was destroyed,” said Mauricio. AN boulder 1.2 meters in diameter had crushed the roof of his sedan, while rocks and debris obstructed four runways, KTLA said. “The windshields are all broken and the car’s chassis is now all bent,” she added.

Last week’s heavy rains across the US rendered roads and highways in the area impassable due to flooding, mud and debris, the broadcaster said earlier.

Mauricio now has no doubts: that phone call saved his life. “I’m still pretty shaken up,” he said. “I honestly don’t think I’ll park here again after what happened. I’m a little traumatized by the whole ordeal,” he admitted.

No one was injured during the landslide, but several other vehicles were damaged. Area resident Nick Kennedy said the rocks “crossed the street”, damaging his SUV that was parked in his driveway.

“I’m sorry, my car was there,” he told KTLA. “But I’m also thinking that those stones could have gone through the wall of the house and it wouldn’t have worked, since my table is on the other side. of that wall… “.
