FLORIDA MYS­TERY: FROZEN PORK FALL­ING FROM SKY

The Denver Post - - NEWS -

Meat fall­ing FORT LAUD­ERDALE, FLA.» from the sky is weird, even by Florida stan­dards.

But that’s what hap­pened at 4 a.m. Satur­day when a 15-pound bag of frozen pork landed on the Deer­field Beach home of Travis Adair and his fam­ily.

Adair said Thurs­day that the pack­age hit his roof with a “big bang.” He thought it was thun­der, but his wife Jen­nie later went out­side and found two bun­dles next to the house. His son Austin found three on the roof.

“It had to fall from the sky,” Adair said. “It was too heavy to throw on the roof.” The home is near three air­ports, so Adair thinks it fell from a plane.

The Fed­eral Avi­a­tion Ad­min­is­tra­tion had no im­me­di­ate com­ment Thurs­day

La­bel­ing on the pack­age shows it orig­i­nally be­longed to Jim Wil­liams, who lives 170 miles away in Myakka City, a ru­ral town of 6,300 res­i­dents. Wil­liams said Thurs­day he bought some pigs from some chil­dren at a county fair in Jan­uary. He kept much of the meat and gave some away but has no idea how any of it ended up on the Adairs’ roof. — The As­so­ci­ated Press
