A man in his 50s has died after being struck by a meteor on the roof of his home.
The man, who has not been named, was in his house at the time.
He suffered injuries to his head and chest and was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital in a critical condition.
“I heard a bang on the window, then a bang.
I looked out and saw a huge cloud of dust,” he said.”
It was just incredible, it was the biggest cloud I had ever seen.”
He was treated at the hospital before being transferred to the Brisbane Royal Infirmary.
Mr Brown said he had been at home watching the weather when he noticed the dust on the floor.
“Then I heard a noise, a thud.
It sounded like a bomb, like somebody had thrown a bomb.”
When I looked outside, I saw the cloud of smoke and debris.
I thought it was some kind of fireworks show.
“Police said they were looking for two people in their 40s, aged 45 and 46, and a person aged 46.
