Strange Object Crashes through Massachusetts Roof

Hemera/Thinkstock(PLYMOUTH, Mass.) -- A mysterious object fell from the sky this week, crashing through the roof of Michael’s Wholesale Furniture Distributors in Plymouth, Mass., leaving a small hole in the roof and scattering debris throughout a closet, but otherwise leaving workers unharmed.

The cylindrical hunk of metal was about six inches long and weighed roughly five pounds. It crashed through the roof either Wednesday or Thursday, according to local authorities.

The origins of the object are currently unknown, with Plymouth Police telling a local affiliate that they could “only speculate,” and admitting that they, “have no clue.”

Federal Aviation Administration inspectors have determined that it is not an airplane part, saying that it most likely came from a piece of heavy machinery, possibly an industrial chipper/shredded. However, the manner in which the object got high enough, and fast enough, to cause that much damage, remains a mystery.
