JERUSALEM, ISRAEL - JANUARY 23: Jewish worshipers pray at the Wailing Wall. The most holy site for Jews. January 23, 2011 in Jerusalem, Israel.
(Worthy News) - An elderly worshipper had a close call on Monday when a 100-kilogram (220-pound) stone suddenly fell from Jerusalem’s Western Wall and crashed at her feet.
The Israel Antiquities Authority said the boulder may have been dislodged by erosion caused by vegetation or moisture in the biblical wall, the holiest place where Jews are permitted to pray.
“I didn’t hear or feel anything until it landed right at my feet,” Daniella Goldberg, a 79-year-old Jerusalem resident who had gone to the wall in the early morning to worship, told Reuters. [ Source: Algemeiner (Read More...) ]
