Well this is just unfortunate, even if i have brought it up in the humour section :P

A 14-year-old German lad survived a close encounter with a meteorite when a pea-sized piece of rock which had entered Earth's atmosphere at 30,000 mph left him with nothing more than a "nasty" three-inch gash on his hand.

Wonder how often this happens! haha, made me laugh :)
