Do not forget that both meteorite (if genuine) and skydiver were in free fall,
so the vertical speed difference between the two might not have been that big.

I remain agnostic on this case. Could be true, could be not.

By the way, having recently searched in a forest: even when the area to search
is only a few hundreds of meters wide, it is hell to do.
