She added: “We called the Canyon project to see if they were doing any blasting and they weren’t, but they did say they had seen a bright light in the sky that had exploded and caused some booms.

Ruth escaped the incident totally unharmed, but reveals she does have a new appreciation for her life following it.

She added: “The only other thing I can think of saying is life is precious and it could be gone at any moment even when you think you are safe and secure in your bed”.
