(Times of Israel) A large boulder from the Western Wall was dislodged from the ancient structure on Monday morning, tumbling down onto an egalitarian prayer platform, which was empty at the time.

There were no reported injuries in the incident near Robinson’s Arch, south of the main prayer plaza, but the rock landed very close to a female worshiper.

Seventy-nine-year-old worshiper Daniella Goldberg told Reuters: “I didn’t hear or feel anything until it landed right at my feet.”
