The odds of being hit by lightning, carried away by a tornado, and blown by a hurricane (all at once), are greater than being hit by a meteor. Like what? Seriously! But here’s the case: you hear more stories about people getting hit by lightning strikes. What’s happening? Thunderstorms are often than meteor showers but do not occur every time. Meteors hit Earth almost every day — about 17 meteors daily — so the odds of being struck by one are less likely to happen anytime soon. But there are exceptions.
In 1954, a woman became the first known person to be directly hit by a meteor, and soon enough became an instant celebrity. Dear friends, meet Ann Hodges, the only known person to have been struck by a meteor and survive to tell tales.
