“I jumped out of bed and turned on the lights. I didn’t know what else to do, so I called 911,” Ruth shared. “Talking to the operator, she was asking me all kinds of questions, and at that point, I rolled back one of the two pillows I’d been sleeping on and in between them was the meteorite. I’ve never been so scared in my life!"

In order to identify the rock, Ruth took it to researchers at the University of Western Ontario.

“It’s certainly a meteorite,” said Professor Peter Brown, who is working with researchers to find out more information.

The meteorite weighed 2.8 pounds, and thankfully, did not injure Ruth. And after such a phenomenon happened to her, Ruth shares that she plans to keep the meteorite after the researchers are done studying it.

“My granddaughters can say that their grandmother just almost got killed in her bed by a meteorite,” Ruth said.
