Two people have died after a massive boulder crushed their house in a landslide in Utah.

The enormous rockslide thundered down a cliff in Rockville at 5pm on Thursday, flattening a house and killing the two people inside instantly.

The boulders are so huge, weighing hundreds of tons, authorities cannot move them until they find machinery big enough.



Dan McGuire, mayor of Rockville, told the NY Daily News that the house, made of wood and rock "just flattened out".

According to the Daily Mail, Mr McGuire said the earth close to the road in the Zion National Park gave way causing the landslide.
