Meteorite fragment hit the world: injured over 1200 in Russian Urals

Ural Meteorite flash
A meteorite fragment flashed Russian Sky over Russia’s Ural Mountains on Friday morning and fell in the Chelyabinsk region about 1500 km east Moscow. The exploded piece injured around 1200 people.

Interior Ministry spokesman Vadim Kolesnikov said 102 people had called for medical assistance following the incident, mostly for treatment of injuries from glass broken by the explosions. Later the number stands more than 1200. Still going on the investigation of total damage it caused.

Kolsenikov also said about 600 square meters of a roof at a zinc factory had collapsed.

Reports conflicted on what exactly happened in the clear skies. A spokeswoman for the Emergency Ministry, Irina Rossius, told The Associated Press that there was a meteor shower, but another ministry spokeswoman, Elena Smirnikh, was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying it was a single meteorite.

The ministry also said some fragments fell near the town of Satka, about 200 kilometers (120 miles) from the regional capital city of Chelyabinsk.

Should we prepare for a big one?

A senior citizen of 82, Terry Miracle, does the miracle busted a criminal

A senior citizen named Terry Miracle, 82, helped the police in busting a robbery suspect. He was then  pulling weeds in his garden as the suspect was being chased by the police on a foot down his street. Miracle said he heard a police officer yelling.

"I heard a terrific commotion," said Miracle. "And then I heard him say, 'He's heading down 3296.'" Miracle recognized those numbers right away, since it's his address. He left the gardening behind and walked up to his house to investigate. Just then, Miracle said the suspect bolted around the corner into his backyard.

"He was looking back to see how close the police were and he didn't see me at all," said Miracle.

In that moment, Miracle remembered a move he learned playing high school football 65 years ago, something he calls a ‘Cross Body Block.'

"'I can do that,' I said to myself, not thinking that I'm an 82-year-old man and he was maybe 30, if that."

Miracle said he ran towards the man, who stopped, and that's when he busted out his move. "You always lift your knee and spread it out a ways," he said. "And I did that kind of atomically I guess. I caught him in the knees and he went down."

That gave police just enough time to catch up and arrest the suspect. Miracle said he is a little sore but otherwise unhurt.

Since taking down the suspect, Miracle said he has become somewhat of a local celebrity in town. He got a standing ovation in church Sunday when the pastor announced what he had done. A couple of boys even asked for his autograph.

"I wouldn't think of myself of a hero," said Miracle. "I would think of myself, at best, as a person that saw something that needed to done, so I did it." Police identified the suspect officers arrested as 27-year-old Morgan Perry Bluehorse, a convict with a long criminal history.
