A notable page from the chronicles of absurdity is the Hodges Meteorite, which on November 30th, 1954, formed a fireball visible in mid-day across three states, on its way to Talladega County, Alabama, where it crashed through the roof of a suburban home in Oak Grove. It bounced off a wooden console radio, and struck Mrs. Ann Hodges, who was napping on her couch. The pomelo-sized extraterrestrial object severely bruised the woman’s hip. A U.S. Air Force helicopter showed up shortly thereafter and took the meteorite away, concluding what must have been the strangest hour in this woman’s life.
This is the only fully documented case of a person being injured by a meteorite.
