Dog Saves Sleeping Woman from Destructive Meteorite

What are the chances of a meteorite plunging down from the skies, crashing through your roof, and ending up on your mattress, right on the spot where you’re sleeping? According to Peter Brown, a professor of physics and astronomy at Western University in Ontario, Canada, aproximately 1 chance in 100 billion. Golden, B.C. resident Ruth Hamilton was the unfortunate victim of such an event, but thanks to her dog, she is still alive.

From the CBC:

Ruth Hamilton had been asleep for hours in her Golden, B.C., home when she awoke to the sound of her dog barking, giving her a moment’s notice before a rock from outer space hurtled into her bedroom.

“The next thing was just a huge explosion and debris all over my face,” Hamilton recalled in an interview Tuesday.

Who’s the bestest boy?
