UK woman hit on head by starfish that fell from sky
A woman from Brighton, East Sussex, was left stunned after a live starfish fell out of the sky and landed on her head.
Artist Julie Anne Gilburt, 39, had just stepped out of her studio Jag Gallery on seafront road Madeira Drive in Brighton, East Sussex, when she was hit by something "squidgy."
Gilburt said that she thought someone had thrown a ball at her head but when she looked down she saw a bright orange starfish - still alive- at her feet, the Mirror reported.
"I had just walked out of the studio because I was planning to use spray paint, which can't be used in doors," she said.
"I felt something squidgy hit my head. I was a bit stunned at first and your mind assumes that it is something trivial like a ball. But I looked at the ground and saw a bright orange starfish.
"I could not believe it. I was so shocked. What are the chances of that happening? My first reaction was that it was raining star fish," she added.
She said that she thought it might be the stormy weather but then she realised that the most obvious explanation was that it was dropped by a seagull.
"All my friends said it was a sign but I am not superstitious," she added.
