In a bizarre incident, a woman in Canada was woken up by a meteorite that crashed through her roof and landed right next to her on her bed. The picture of the meteorite as well as the roof has gone viral on social media.
In an interview with CBC News, Ruth Hamilton shared how she woke up to a bang and spotted the big rock on the pillow lying next to her. “The next thing was just a huge explosion and debris all over my face,”
Hamilton told the news website. “I jumped out of bed and turned on the lights. I didn’t know what else to do, so I called 911,” she added.
A police officer arrived at Ms Hamilton’s house and investigated the possible reasons for the rock to land there. There was construction going on a nearby canyon project. But the officer found no evidence that the rock came from there and landed at the house as a result of a blast.
The only feasible explanation the officer found was that a meteorite had made its way through Ms Hamilton’s roof, reported the news website.
Luckily for Hamilton, the damage to her roof will be covered by the insurance company though the company will check to see if roof holes caused by space debris are covered.
