MELBOURNE, Fla., March 31 (UPI) -- A Florida restaurant said a fish that fell from the sky and landed on an employee's windshield is alive and on display at the eatery's pond.
Angel Pacheco, an employee at Chameleon's sushi bar in Melbourne, said a worker was preparing to leave for the day when the fish landed on the windshield of his truck, WESH-TV, Orlando, Fla., reported Wednesday.
"They brought him into the kitchen, put him in some water, he started flopping around and they said, 'Oh wow, we're going to have fresh sushi because we're a great sushi bar here,' and I said, 'Wait a minute. That's our lucky fish. That doesn't just happen every day. We need to put him in our pond up front so everybody can enjoy him,'" Pacheco said.
He told WESH-TV the fish, which has a dent in its head believed to be from the fall, appears to be swimming happily with the restaurant's other fish.
Workers theorized the fish was dropped onto the vehicle by a bird flying overhead.
