I forked the article:
- in Hodges meteorite I left everything about the fragment that hits Mrs Hodges and the consequences of this event
- in Sylacauga (meteorite) I put everything about the meteorite fall from a scientifical viewpoint
Not the only one
There is a second known instance of a meteor striking a human. A Ugandan boy was hit with a 3 gram piece of a meteor in the Mbale strike. I've found a number of links to it, some of them on college astronomy sites.
- Done, I just updated the article. Thanks for pointing it out! -- Basilicofresco (msg) 11:39, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
I have removed the unproven claim (and obvious hoax) of a person allegedly hit by a meteorite earlier this month.
McKinney sold the meteorite to a lawyer from Indianapolis who later purchased it for the Smithsonian Institution.
