By a 30,000 MPH Meteorite

German teenager Gerrit Blank may be the
unluckiest person on Earth...or maybe he's the luckiest.
What some astronomers claim is a "trillion to one chance" has happened again, a
meteorite has hit a human being. Although the odds are certainly against anyone
being hitólet alone killedóby a meteorite.
Perhaps a trillion to one is being too optimistic, however, because at least two
people have been struck by meteorites in less than 100 years and there may be
more cases of such incidents.
Over the past few thousands of years dozens of documented cases recorded the
maiming or killing of many humans. Some of the more verifiable historical cases
