You see a few massive boulders traveling directly towards you at several miles an hour, what are you gonna do?
Whenever we vacation in the mountains, it’s not a rare sight to see a few road closures due to rock slides, but I can honestly say I’ve never witnessed one myself.
Of course, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that these kind of events are highly dangerous, and can potentially be fatal of the rocks were to hit a person, crash through a house, or knock a car off the side of the road.
And now after seeing this video, it truly puts things into perspective of how dangerous these natural events can be.
Although this one? Not so natural.
In this video footage, the group of hunters actually pushed the large boulder down the hill, which brought a number of loose rocks along with it. Idiot behavior, no doubt, but the end result is even more than they could’ve imagined.
However, the one rock that really catches your eye is a MASSIVE boulder flying at an insane rate of speed, making a beeline directly for a tree.
You can hear the person filming say:
“Hit the tree..”
And sure enough, the boulder centers the tree perfectly, splits in half, and it basically disintegrates into a million pieces as the rock travels right through it.
Yeah, incase you were wondering what kind of damage a boulder can do in a rock slide, look no further than this video.
Once again, you can’t condone the stunt, but nevertheless, it’s pretty wild to see the kind of force that a runaway rock can generate when it’s moving down a hill. If you ever find yourself in a rock slide, getting behind a tree might actually be a pretty bad idea.
I guess this is what happens when you’re getting skunked out on the hunt.
