Two cricket fans' enjoyment of a county cricket match was interrupted when a meteorite sailed towards the boundary ropes, hitting one man in the chest.

Now that's what you call a lucky escape !!
The meteorite measured five inches in length and I guess is big enough to cause death or serious injury if it had been a direct hit .



Mr Marszel, an IT consultant, told the Daily Telegraph: “We were sitting at the boundary edge when all of a sudden, out of a blue sky, we saw this small dark object hurtling towards us. “It landed five yards inside the boundary and split into two pieces. “One piece bounced up and hit me in the chest and the other ended up against the boundary board. “It came across at quite a speed - if it had hit me full on it could have been very interesting."

Dude's now rich. Fact. I just hope he realises just how much space rocks are, they go up 100fold once they hit a person/man made object. It's probably worth 100 grand or so!!

Now that gives you some awesome crap talking rights. I mean some people say "I've been hit my lightining and survived, beat that." This guy can be like "Biyatch, I'VE BEEN HIT BY A METORITE! AND SURVIVED!" I think thats wayyy more bad@$$ then getting hit with lightining. AWESOME!

You know i don't think he's even thought of that , the tone of the report suggests it's been taken away for analysis , I hope he gets it back

It hasn't been confirmed that it definitely was a real meteorite. Hopefully it will be soon. Here's the original article in the Telegraph:
