English cathedral smashed by ice from passing plane
Catholic World News - July 13, 2012
Brentwood cathedral in Essex, England was the site of a bizarre accident last Sunday: the roof of the building was smashed by a block of ice dropped from an airplane passing overhead.
Although the incident occurred during Mass, no one was hurt. The ice crashed through the roof on an unoccupied side of the church, leaving the floor littered with the remnants of shingles and plaster. The damage was repaired the next day.
The ice was apparently refuse from a passing jet, which had jettisoned its waste in violation of ordinary air-traffic rules.
