The lucky one, 33-year-old Joshua Hutagalung, said the “exotic object” smashed through the roof of his living room in August while he was working near his home, the report said. “When I got it (the meteorite), the stone was still warm.”

Josua Hutagalung said she suspected the stone was a meteorite because no one could have deliberately come down from the sky.

The meteorite, which weighs 2.1 kg and is estimated to be more than 4.5 billion years old, is classified as a CM1/2 carbon crater meteorite, an extremely rare species worth about 1.4 million pounds, or 645 pounds per g.

Josua Hutagalung says he will use some of the money to build a church in the community.
