Frozen ‘poo’ ball mys­tery

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AN icy ball which fell on a vil­lage in the north­ern In­dian state of Haryana is thought to be frozen hu­man SHIT dumped out of an aero­plane.

The 26lbs chunk of ice fell on Fazilpur Badli with a “big thud”, star­tling lo­cals on Satur­day.

Se­nior Gur­gaon of­fi­cial Vivek Kalia said some vil­lagers thought it was an “ex­tra-ter­res­trial” ob­ject.

Plane toi­lets store hu­man waste in spe­cial tanks and are nor­mally dis­posed of once the plane has landed.

But au­thor­i­ties have ad­mit­ted leaks can some­times oc­cur while planes are in the air.

Mr Kalia added that a sam­ple of the pro­jec­tile had been sent for chem­i­cal anal­y­sis, but said “we sus­pect strongly that it is frozen air­line ex­cre­ment”.
