Video: Norwegian skydiver almost gets hit by falling meteor
6 hours ago by Nancy Atkinson, Universe Today


He added that the meteorite may have been part of a larger rock that had exploded perhaps 20 kilometers above Helstrup.
What if the rock would have hit Helstrup or his diving partner? Amundson said the rock would have cut him in half.
"Imagine a 5 kilo rock hitting you in the chest at 300 kilometers per hour," Amundson says in the video. "That would have led to quite an accident investigation."
