A Fallbrook construction company removed a six-ton boulder from the garage of a Poway woman without charge Tuesday.

The six foot-wide boulder landed in JeNielle Rose-Gendelman's garage Thursday morning.

Rose-Gendelman grew up in the 54-year-old home that her father built, and was concerned her insurance would not cover the boulder's removal.

When Mike McLeod, with Southwest Boulder & Stone in Fallbrook, heard about her story he decided to remove the giant boulder for free.

"It's a routine job for us," said McLeod.

McLeod's team brought in a specialized crane truck with the words "Bigger, Better, Boulder" emblazoned on the side.

The truck and crew swooped down with a giant "hand-like device" and simply picked up the rock.

They offered to put the boulder somewhere in her yard, but Rose-Gendelman said she didn't want to see it again.

The crew said they'll take it back to the company yard. They might even attach a sign "As Seen on TV."
