Skydiver Nearly Hit by Meteorite

Talk about a close call. While skydiving a Norwegian man was nearly hit be a meteorite, which missed him by only a few feet. The incident happened just as the skydiver released his parachute and even though he didn’t know at the time he had just dodged fate, he realized something was happening.

“I got the feeling that there was something, but I didn’t register what was happening,” Helstrup explained to

The skydiver was wearing dual cameras on his helmet during the jump, so he was able to capture the meteorite on video.
