HEDMARK, Norway (NRK) – Skydiving is known to be a dangerous activity.

Each year, about 19 people die in the United States due to skydiving accidents.

However, those deaths cannot be attributed to what almost took out a Norwegian skydiver during a jump in 2012.

Anders Helstrup jumped from a small plane wearing a wing suit with two cameras fixed to his helmet.

According to NRK, on the way to the ground, he realized something unusual was happening.

Immediately after landing, he looked through his video and spotted something strange.

It appears a small meteorite passed Helstrup shortly after he opened his parachute.

Meteorite experts say it appears the space rock hit its “dark flight” as it passed the skydiver.
