A single stone crashed through the roof of Noe Garza's house, then blew through the ceiling, crushed a window sill, and smashed a full-length mirror in his son's bedroom -- narrowly missing his son's head while he was asleep in bed. The two largest fragments of this stone were featured all over the local news as this became the most famous meteorite recovered from the Park Forest event.
