Frozen jetliner waste smashes into home

LONDON, April 14 (UPI) -- A chunk of frozen jetliner waste crashed through the roof of a London home but a mother and baby in the building escaped injury, police said Monday.

Peta Simey, 33, said she heard a massive bang and at first thought a bomb must have gone off but then saw a hole in the ceiling, The Daily Mail reported.

Simey had just returned home from taking her 6-month-old son to a doctor when a block of "blue ice" landed in the master bedroom, right on her bed.

"I feel so lucky," Simey said, "If it had happened the same time a day earlier it would have hit all of us."

"I know we're below a flight path but I never imagined this could ever happen," she told the newspaper.
