Huge Boulder Dislodges from Western Wall in Jerusalem, Israel
Jerusalem, Israel. 25th July, 2018. Teams from the Israel Antiquities Authority and the Western Wall Heritage Foundation remove an estimated 400Kg boulder (882 lbs) that became dislodged and fell Monday from one of the original Herodian courses of the Western Wall onto the egalitarian prayer platform near Robinson's Arch, narrowly missing a woman standing in prayer underneath. The Western Wall is considered a remnant of a wall supporting the Second Temple complex, destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE.
