Meteorite crashes through woman's roof, lands next to her head, and lays next her to head while she is sleeping
When a meteorite crashed through her roof and landed right on her pillow, shivering ice cream addict in Canada was peacefully sleeping.
Ruth Hamilton, who lives in a town called Golden in the province of British Columbia, was catching some Zs while others in her neighborhood were fascinated by spotting blight on the night sky.
She soon discovered a big hole in her ceiling and sand on her pillow, and her attention was immediately drawn to the meteorite, however, as she suddenly felt ash on the surface, causing her to wake up, stunned, only to find heaviness on both sides.
Hamilton then called 911, who arrived at the scene and checked to determine if the rock might have come from a nearby construction site. NDTV continues to report how Hamilton followed suit and called for help. They confirmed that wasnt the case, and deduced that it was the meteorite that had given the rest of Golden residents such a show earlier.
I was shaking and scared when it happened, I thought someone had jumped in or it was a gun or something, said Hamilton of the incident afterward. Its almost a relief when we realized it could only have fallen out of the sky, said the couple.
The meteorite had just missed Hamiltons head by a few inches.
Experts from the Western University in London, Ontario, confirmed that the rock had presumably come from space.
