+ - Norwegian Skydiver Almost Gets Hit by Falling Meteor and Captures it on Film->

Submitted by reifman
reifman (786887) writes "From the apparently not April Fools department: Anders Helstrup went skydiving nearly two years ago near Hedmark, Norway and while he didn’t realize it at the time, when he reviewed the footage taken by two cameras fixed to his helmet during the dive, he saw a rock plummet past him.
