The sky really was falling in Edgewood, where a big chunk of ice came crashing through the roof of a family's home.
“We heard a loud boom, woke us up,” homeowner Karen Edgmon said Wednesday of the noise they heard around 11 p.m. on June 2. "My husband thought an M-80 (large firecracker) had been thrown in the yard. It was a loud boom."
When the Edgmons searched their home, they found nothing until the next morning when they went outside and noticed a hole in the roof and found a hole in a closet ceiling.
Because they couldn't find any kind of projectile, and the closet was flooded, they believe the hole was caused by ice falling from an airplane into their home.
"The piece of ice came through the ceiling. The outside hole is about eight inches in diameter and it crashed through that plywood, the roofing and came down through the insulation and drywall into the closet and fell to the floor, " she said.
They live in the Sea-Tac flight pattern, although Edgewood is 20 miles south of the airport. They have contacted the Federal Aviation Administration, but so far they say they have no answers how this happened.
This is not the first time something has fallen from the sky onto the Edgmons property. An engine cover from a 747 fell in a field 26 years ago.
"We just want answers,” Karen Edgmon said. “It's happened to us twice and this is something that's kind of like a once-in-a-lifetime thing.”
