Wow, when this boy grows up, he’ll be getting free drinks in return for his story for the rest of his life. The scar is probably worth it:

Gerrit Blank, 14, was on his way to school when he saw “ball of light” heading straight towards him from the sky.

A red hot, pea-sized piece of rock then hit his hand before bouncing off and causing a foot wide crater in the ground.

The teenager survived the strike, the chances of which are just 1 in a million – but with a nasty three-inch long scar on his hand…

(Thanks, Cindy.)
