Manner from Heaven? How a 15 Pounds of Frozen Meat Fell from Sky on Man’s House (Photo) ••
Meat falling from the sky is weird, but that’s what happened at 4 a.m. Saturday when a 15-pound bag of frozen pork landed on the home of a man and his family.
This photo provided by Austin Adair taken on Saturday, shows a 15-pound bag of frozen pork that fell from the sky onto the home of Travis Adair in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
A 15-pound (6.8-kilogram) bag of frozen pork landed on the Deerfield Beach home of a man identified as Travis Adair and his family in Florida, USA at 4 a.m. Saturday.
While speaking to a correspondent, Adair said that the package hit his roof with a “big bang”, adding that 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.
He said; “It had to fall from the sky. It was too heavy to throw on the roof.” Adair’s home is near three airports, so he thinks it fell from a plane.
Labeling on the package however shows it originally belonged to Jim Williams, who lives 170 miles (270 kilometers) away in Myakka City, a rural town of 6,300 residents.
Williams, who owns a company that prepares fields for planting, 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 he has no idea how any of it ended up on the Adairs’ roof. He is not a pilot and doesn’t own a plane.
“I would have thought 15 pounds of frozen meat falling from an airplane would have put a hole in the roof,” Williams said.
His friend, Jimmy Fussell, who owns the butcher shop that processed the pigs for Williams, said the mystery, which was featured on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” certainly “beats hearing about all the politics going on.”
