The “meteorite” that hit a French woman was just an ordinary rock

In a story that has gone viral, a French woman describes how she was injured when she was hit by a rock from space. But experts suggest that all is not what it seems in this meteoric tale.

The woman, who resides in Schirmeck in the French province of Bas-Rhin, said she was sitting on her porch around 4 a.m. local time on July 6 when she heard a shock on the roof. Then a pebble fell from the roof and hit her at the level of her rib.
