Luckiest kid in the world lives in Germany

A 14-year-old German boy, Gerrit Blank, was walking along, minding his own business, when a pea-sized meteorite struck him on the hand with such force it sent him tumbling head over heals and slamming a foot-wide crater in the ground nearby.

The odds of being hit by a meteorite are approximately 1 in a million. The chances it will leave a cool 3 inch long scar you can show all your friends is even less likely. But it happened.
