Sept. 30 (UPI) -- A California homeowner's doorbell camera captured the moment an Amazon delivery driver swatted at a bug and accidentally launched a package onto the roof of the house.

Casey McPerry posted a video to TikTok showing the moment an Amazon driver bearing a package of vitamins approached the front door of his San Diego home and swatting at what appears to be an insect.


The driver loses his grip on the package during the gesture, sending it flying onto the roof of the home.

The video shows the distraught driver walking around outside the house for a few moments while trying to figure out how to get it down.

McPerry said he received a text from the driver, saying: "Hi this is your Amazon delivery driver. This sounds crazy, but I accidentally threw a package on your roof. Do you have a ladder I can use?"

McPerry said he didn't get the message until later in the evening, but used a flashlight to confirm the package still was on the roof. He was able to retrieve it the next day.
