Daytime fireballs are easily missed, and small meteorites can be
produced with neither a significant fireball nor any audible atmospheric
acoustics. A fireball would have been several minutes earlier, and most
acoustics as well.

It looks strange that a further skydiver appeared shortly after the stone passed the camera. But I aggree, the statistic argument is not valid, because *every* single event in our life can be calculated extremely improbable, a priori. If nobody wants it to have reproduced, the (a priori) likelyhood of a single event does not say it could have occured.
