DETROIT (AP) — A Detroit man says a softball-sized chunk of ice fell from the sky and knocked a hole into the roof of his west side home.
Gerald Young tells WJBK-TV that he believes the grayish lump originated from a plane flying overhead about 6:15 p.m. Sunday.
The television station reports that a party was under way outdoors next to Young’s home, but no one was hit by the ice. Young tells the station that he reported the incident to the Federal Aviation Administration.
A neighbor says they heard a whistling sound before the ice crashed into the roof and rolled to the ground.
FAA spokesman Tony Molinaro says the agency is investigating the incident. He said there is a better chance of tracing the ice’s origin if it was saved by the homeowner.
