The Discovery Channel's popular mythbusting duo busted more than the myth this time.They really dodged a bullet...or a cannonball...on that one.
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.
