‘When I got over to the crater it was around 15 inches deep and about the same across. The rock in the middle was glowing red.’
In a video taken at the time he exclaimed ‘it’s a damn meteorite’ as he flicks the hot object out of the hole with a penknife.
Though several media outlets are reporting the incident, it didn’t happen. The video is fake.”Back street Hollywood school of acting. Fake,” wrote one observant commenter on the Daily Mail post.Indeed, bad acting and bad script.
