Norwegian Skydiver Buzzed by Meteorite

How many people can say that they were almost killed by a falling meteorite in mid-air while skydiving? Anders Helstrup can.

From Norsk rikskringkasting AS (NRK)

Here’s the article which explains more about the Youtube clip:

Norwegian skydiver nearly struck by meteorite

Apparently the rock was about 5-10 kg (11-22 lbs) and falling at a speed of about 300 kph (terminal velocity). That would have been more than enough to kill Helstrup (or anyone else).
