Puzzle - 6

This puzzle is a real challenge for your lateral thinking.

Once there was loving couple travelling in a bus in a mountainous area. They decided to get down at some place. The couple disembarked and the bus moved on. As the bus moved on, a humongous rock fell on the bus from the mountain and crushed the bus to crumbs. Everybody on board was killed. The couple upon seeing that, said, "We wish we were on that bus". Why do u think they said that? I shall wait for the readers answer first in the comment section...

Ans: As mentioned in the comment section - The Bus would have passed by before the rock fell down If it didn't have to stop to let the couple alight...

they said like that bcos if there were on the bus, the bus could have moved on from that particular place a few seconds earlier. and the rock would not have fallen on the bus. Since the couple stopped to get down.. time was consumed and it happened so that the rock fall on the bus. is this correct ans?

hmmm, maybe because their getting OFF the bus helped in making the falling rock and the moving bus intersect...?
