One very unlucky German teenager was struck by a meteorite this week, but survived to tell the tale.

Details are sketchy, but according to, as 14-year-old Gerrit Blank walked home from school, the red-hot object fell out of the sky, hit his hand, and crashed into the ground, leaving a foot-wide crater.

“At first I just saw a large ball of light, and then I suddenly felt a pain in my hand. Then a split second after that there was an enormous bang like a crash of thunder,” he told “The noise that came after the flash of light was so loud that my ears were ringing for hours afterwards.”

After hearing this news, David Ortiz, who recently broke out of a huge slump after reading this article, was quoted as saying “my bad”.
