The Mythbusters is a show that has been very interestingÂ to people because it tests different scientific theories.
But there is a family who was terribly scared because on one of their experiments, an errant cannonball went shooting through their California’s family bedroom.
Right now, the police are investigating on how the cannonball went to a house from the rolling hills to the neighborhood and went down to the front door of a home and landed into a neighbor’s minivan.
The show is all about types of projectiles shot from a cannon would pick up the same speed and have the same impact as the steel ball.
The plan is it will hit the string of water-filled garbage cans, but instead it passed over the barrels of cans then crashes straight through the protective cinderblock wall and went into the hill behind it.
The Alameda County Sheriff’s Department spokesman J. D. Nelson said, “It missed the target and took kind of oddball bounce. It was almost like skipping a rock on a lake. Instead of burying it into the hill it just went skyward.”
It’s a good thing that no one was hurt and the family only woke up until the broken drywall settled on top of them.
Co-host and executive producer Adam Savage said they plan to make everything right and pay for the damages.
He said, “We are really, really grateful and glad that no one was hurt. Discovery is committed to making this right and making sure that everything has been damaged is as good or better as before this started.”
Producers said that their experiment was in the bomb range which was in a suburb of Dublin.
The one who owned the minivan was Jasber Gil. He said, he and his family just got home.
He told Contra Costa Times, “It’s scary, I was in the van five minutes before it happened.”
MythBusters released the official statement, “Beyond Productions is currently assessing the situation and working with those whose property was affected.”
On the Discovery Channel’s website, they described the show as, ‘scientific method with gleeful curiosity and plain old-fashioned ingenuity to create own signature style of explosive experimentation.’
