NO. Seriously. A meteorite has crashed into Earth. Bruce Willis…please save us!
MOSCOW (CNN) — A meteor shower sparked an explosion that left 247 people injured Friday in southern Russia, the local Emergency Ministry said.
Nine people have been hospitalized, a spokesman for the Emergency Ministry of Chelyabinsk told CNN. Most of the injuries were caused by broken glass.
State-run RIA Novosti news agency said at least three people were critically injured by broken glass.
A bright white flash appeared in the sky for a few seconds, followed by a heavy “bang” that sounded like a blast, according to official news agency Itar-Tass.
