ST. GEORGE, Utah—A woman in Utah is recovering after a boulder rolled through her bedroom in the middle of the night.

A boulder careened down the side of the hill and straight into the building around 3 a.m.

Authorities say she heard a rumbling noise and rolled closer to her husband as the boulder crashed through their bedroom.

If she had rolled the other direction, officials believe she would have been killed.

In shock, the homeowner managed to find her phone and call 911.

She was rushed to the hospital with a broken jaw, cracked sternum and a large gash on her leg.

Medical officials say she’s lucky to be alive because it could have been worse.
