Death by meteorite is a very, very uncommon way to go. Most objects from space disintegrate while entering the Earth's atmosphere. A man in Tamil Nadu, India may be the first person to actually be killed by a falling meteorite in at least 200 years, according to NDTV. Scientists are still analyzing the scrap of material that is believed to be the meteorite for confirmation.  The explosion from the impact also shattered windows in a nearby school building but everyone inside remained unhurt. 



A similar thing happened in Russia in 2013 and it was caught on film. You can see the meteor streaking through the sky on its way to strike a building.
