Documented Cases


Annie Hodges of Sylacauga, Alabamawas napping on her couch on November 30, 1954 when an eight-pound meteorite crashed through the roof. It bounced off a large console radio and hit her in the arm and then in the leg, leaving her bruised but okay.

On the afternooon of June 21, 1994, Jose Martin and his wife, Vicenta Cors, were driving in Spain from Madrid to Marbella. As they zoomed past the town of Getafe, a three-pound meteorite smashed through their windshield on the driverís side, ricocheted off the dashboard, and bent the steering wheel, breaking the little finger on Martinís right hand. It then flew between the coupleís heads and landed on the back seat. Other than the broken little finger, they were okay.
