'Mythbusters' Cannonball Accidentally Launches Into California Home

Published December 06, 2011 | FoxNews.com


The Discovery Channel's popular mythbusting duo busted more than the myth this time.

A stunt for the show, "Mythbusters," went awry Tuesday when a cannonball was launched through the side of a California home.

The house in Dublin -- southeast of Oakland -- was hit at about 4:15 p.m. when a cannonball was "misfired" from a nearby bomb range, KTVU-TV reported, citing the Alameda County Sheriff's Department.

A sheriff's spokesperson said "the cannonball took a few unfortunate bounces" before hitting the home, going all the way through the house before smashing the window of a mini van, KTVU-TV reports.

"That cannonball careened off the hill at a very bad trajectory and carried into this neighborhood," J.D. Nelson of Alameda County Sheriff's Department said.

No one was injured.

I wonder if this will make it into the eventual episode...
I sometimes forget that Mythbusters is a locally-produced show, and then something like this will pop up and I'll remember, "Oh yeah, they make that show right here in the Bay Area!"
