Two seniors in Mississauga are unhurt but shaken up after a chunk of ice believed to be from an airliner passing over their home fell through their roof and landed in their bedroom closet Wednesday morning.

At about 6:30 a.m., the Caccavos were asleep in their home when they heard a loud crash.

“I thought something collapsed, like if you’re throwing something down the stairs and everything, boom – shatters,” Carmela Caccavo told CP24.

The Mississauga mom was sleeping just a couple of metres away from where the ice chunk smashed through her closet.

At first, she thought an animal might have somehow crashed into the home.

“I thought it was a raccoon, because I hear lots of stories. But my son came and we saw a big chunk of ice,” she said.

Michael Caccavo said he felt the house shake.

“I just heard a big loud boom. The house shook a little bit, and just woke up right away.”

When he went to his parents’ room, they found a chunk of ice in the closet and a hole in the ceiling above.

“At first I was in shock and disbelief. I didn’t know what happened,” Caccavo told CTV News Toronto.

They later weighed the piece of ice and found it be close to five pounds. Continue Reading Chunk of ice falls from airliner into Mississauga seniors’ bedroom…

Researcher suggests ‘poopsicle’ theory for B.C. woman hit by falling feces

Rob Young, with UBCO, says frozen feces could have formed on the outside of the plane

Carli BerryJun. 1, 2018 12:26 p.m. A “poopsicle” forming on a plane, then melting as the plane reached a lower altitude is one researcher’s suggestion on why a Kelowna woman was hit by, what she believes to be, falling feces a few weeks ago.

Kelowna resident Susan Allan said she was in her car with her son in the early afternoon of May 9. She was stopped at the street lights on Spall Road and Bernard Avenue when an unwelcome deluge covered her car and came through the open sunroof.

3 large pieces of ice mysteriously appear in Calgary yard

3/ 03/ 2018 en 6:53 | Publicado en Casuística | Comentarios desactivados en 3 large pieces of ice mysteriously appear in Calgary yard

By Tony Tighe. Consumer Reporter Global News. March 6, 2018

A Calgary homeowner wonders if ice from a passing plane fell in her backyard.
Patricia Praud woke up Saturday to find three large pieces of ice in the snow in her yard in the northwest community of Collingwood.

“There’s two indentations in the lawn where one hit and bounced twice and landed over there and then I looked and there was three. Quite the size. I would say that one is about the size of maybe a football and one like a basketball.”

She says there were no footprints in the snow.

Her neighbour Barbara Vinsome inspected the ice and believes one large piece broke apart when it landed.

“Looking at them, they could all probably join together in one solid piece of ice because they are all fairly uniform in depth.

Patricia says if it did fall from the sky, she’s very lucky the ice didn’t fall on her house.

She’ll be contacting Transport Canada ask someone to investigate.

In a statement, Transport Canada said:

“Transport Canada takes all reports of possible debris coming from aircraft very seriously. Every reported incident is investigated by department officials and if it can be determined that the ice came from an aircraft, the department will try to identify the air carrier to ensure the problem is rectified.”

Astonishing moment street cleaner cheats death by inches when block of ice ‘falls from plane’ in Kew

8/ 02/ 2018 en 6:48 | Publicado en Casuística, Hielo del fuselaje | Comentarios desactivados en Astonishing moment street cleaner cheats death by inches when block of ice ‘falls from plane’ in Kew

Barney Davis. Friday 9 February 2018 08:16

This is the incredible moment a block of ice falling from the sky narrowly misses a street cleaner in leafy Kew Gardens.
CCTV footage captured the moment council worker Serhiy Myeshkov is startled by the loud “explosion” of sound as the 20kg sheet of ice crashed to the ground “like a meteorite”.
He was working under a busy flight path to Heathrow in North Road, yards from Kew Gardens station, leading to speculation from onlookers that it fell from a plane.
Amir Khan, 39, of taxi firm International Chauffeurs, captured the moment on the taxi firm’s security camera at just after 9am on Wednesday.

He said: “It was like the start of a disaster movie like The Day After Tomorrow.
“It made such a loud noise like a meteorite crashing down. The street cleaner was so confused and scared. Everyone came running out to look at the sky. It was crazy.”

His boss Mos Sayid added: “I walk my kids round that corner all the time it has me worried for them. I live close by so I’m constantly under the flight path – there is no escape.
“It’s a miracle no one was hit. It was a really big block of ice – bigger than your head. I hope something changes so it doesn’t happen again.”
Vipin Chopra, 50, was inside the off-licence when he heard what sounded like a “huge explosion” from outside.
He said: “The airline is at fault, its under a flightpath. I keep looking up thinking it could happen again.ice3a

“It’s such a popular area school kids always walk along there. “Anything falling from that height could have killed.
“The airlines need to do something to ensure it doesn’t happen again.”
In comparison to the 2.5 million flights a year in UK airspace, approximately 30 ice falls per year are reported to the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
They say they can be caused by leaks from planes or when ice which has naturally formed on an aircraft at higher altitudes breaks off as it descends into warmer air.
A spokesman for CAA said: “Although ice does very occasionally fall from aircraft, it can also be the result of meteorological phenomena.
“We receive around 30 reported ice falls every year, although we are not certain how many of these incidents are the result of ice falling from an aircraft.”

The sky is falling? Alliston man says odd-shaped ice chunk came from high above

Jan 23, 2018 by Brad Pritchard Alliston Herald

It came from the sky, but how it got there is anyone’s guess.

George Bearse was at his home on Callander Crescent in Alliston Saturday afternoon when his wife heard a loud thud outside their home.

As a former member of the Peel police bomb squad, any sudden noise automatically causes his ears to perk up.

So he went outside to investigate and discovered an odd-shaped chunk of ice that had seemingly crash-landed on the gravel walkway between his and the neighbour’s home.

The object was about a foot and a half long, weighed five pounds and had an elongated aerodynamic shape, almost like a missile.

Landed in Gurgaon village after falling out of aircraft; scientists were called in

Written by Sakshi Dayal | Gurgaon | Updated: January 21, 2018 1:34 pm

Human waste discarded mid-air by a passing aircraft led to some confusion — and comedy — at Gurgaon’s Fazilpur Badli village on Saturday. As the human waste landed in a field with a thud, many residents mistook it for a meteor and claimed it came “shooting out of the sky”. Not long after, a team of scientists rushed to the spot — only to confirm that it was, in fact, faeces.

Six-foot chunk of mystery yellow ice crashes through roof of a woman’s home in Chicago

The snow may have stopped falling in Chicago, but one woman was extremely puzzled after she found a chunk of yellow ice which had fallen straight through her roof.

Dawn Scarpulla first knew something was wrong when she heard a big boom followed by a crash.

47FC9D2300000578-5255457-image-a-87_1515607554456

‘I found ice – yellow ice – on my roof,’ she told CBS 2. ‘When we put the pieces together it was like a five- to six-foot piece of ice, so it was big,’ Scarpulla says.

The yellow ice broke apart and cracked her ceiling.

She has decide to keep a sample of the mysterious substance in her garage freezer.

One theory is that the ice may have fallen from a plane that was landing a Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

Aircraft fly over her home constantly but the FAA says because planes are de-iced, it’s unlikely the large icicle fell from a jet.

Even the police have been involved, visiting her house to take pictures of the scene and taking some of the yellowing remnants away in an evidence bag for analysis but all leads have so far gone cold.
