(AbsoluteNews.com) – When people go to sleep at night, there’s an expectation that they’re safe in their beds. Certainly, they don’t expect a rock to crash through their ceiling and land next to them. However, that’s exactly what happened to a woman in British Columbia, Canada.
On October 4, many Canadians watched a fireball light up the night as a meteor flew across the sky above Lake Louise in a breathtaking display. Remember the saying, “What goes up, must come down?” Ruth Hamilton learned that lesson the hard way.
Hamilton was sleeping as the meteor passed overhead. Suddenly a noise and falling debris awakened her. She said she got out of bed and turned on the light to figure out what happened. That’s when she noticed a rock on her pillow next to where her head had been moments before.

Hamilton called 911 and an officer responded. The cop first thought it could be debris from a nearby construction site, but soon realized it was a meteorite on her pillow. It had crashed through her roof and landed on her pillow.
The woman said she sat in her house shaking for hours. Who can blame her? The meteorite fell from space with such force that it went right through her roof, imagine what would’ve happened had it hit her. Hamilton said her insurance company is working on fixing her roof. Hamilton plans on keeping the space rock.
