Meteorite has fallen on the territory of Turkish city Ordu.
According to Turkish media, the fall of the meteorite last night caused panic among the city’s population.
“The fall of the meteorite was captured by an observation camera of one of the institutions of the city. Now its place is being specified.
Thousands of meteorites fall every year on various parts of the earth. There is no reason to panic. According to preliminary data, the meteorite was small and fell to the coastal area of the city,” said the mayor.
After his fuel tanker caught fire in the middle of a gas station, a Turkish driver named Engin Koçak jumped in truck’s cab and drove the burning beast away from the flammable site, undoubtedly saving a whole mess of lives.
“The fuel tank went up in flames instantly,” Koçak is quoted as saying. “At that moment, I said, ‘Let something happen to me, instead of the people nearby,’ and got behind the wheel.”
