Ohio Man Says He Was Hit By Meteorite.
Quaker City, Ohio -- An Ohio man claims he was hit in the shoulder by a chunk of meteorite falling from the sky Sunday night.

"I didn't know what it was," Pat Foraker said. "I thought somebody was playing a prank on me and threw something at me."

But Foraker said he doesn't believe the rock was thrown by his neighbor or anyone else in Quaker City.

"Hit me right here, I heard it," he said. "It was like a whistling noise. It thumped my shoulder and landed in the swimming pool."

The rock sliced the skin on Foraker's shoulder, and was still warm when he plucked it out of the pool.

Geologists at Ohio State University will examine the rock, but believe it's likely a meteorite.

"It's kind of a 'strange things happen to strange people,' I guess," Foraker said.
