Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place!

In Hualien, Taiwan, a couple narrowly escaped death as a 5-ton boulder fell on their vehicle after a rain-triggered landslide. Suffering only minor injuries, the couple attributed their survival to their Hyundai Tucson.

Pictures taken by Taiwanese news agencies show the boulder, having almost the same size as the Hyundai Tucson, resting next to each other. The pictures also show the damage received by the vehicle, which according to bystanders, was unbelievable considering the magnitude of the accident.

When interviewed, the husband and wife credited the overall safety design and body of the Hyundai Tucson. They also added that they will purchase another Tucson unit immediately.

Hyundai acknowledged the incident and they expressed their gratitude that the Taiwanese couple survived. Hyundai also reiterated the utmost quality they put into every Hyundai vehicle.

First and foremost, let’s be careful out there.

Hyundai is proud to show their dedication doesn’t end with vehicle sales, they are also after the safety of their customers. Falling boulders and all.
