German teen hit by meterorite

Fourteen-year-old Gerrit Blank was on his way to school in Essen, Germany, when he saw a "ball of light" in the sky heading his way. Moments later he was struck on the hand by a pea-sized meteorite which left a three-inch scar; the sound (a sonic boom, I suppose) temporarily deafened him.
