hit by a meteorite and lives

Wow, when this boy grows up, he'll be getting free drinks in return for his story for the rest of his life. The scar is probably worth it:

Gerrit Blank, 14, was on his way to school when he saw "ball of light" heading straight towards him from the sky.

A red hot, pea-sized piece of rock then hit his hand before bouncing off and causing a foot wide crater in the ground.

The teenager survived the strike, the chances of which are just 1 in a million - but with a nasty three-inch long scar on his hand...

(Thanks, Cindy.)
