5-pound hunk of metal crashes into Mass. warehouseMystery 5-pound chunk of metal crashes through roof of Plymouth, Mass., furniture warehouse
PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) ' The owners of a Plymouth, Mass., furniture warehouse want to know the origin of a chunk of metal that apparently plunged through the roof.
No one was hurt when the six-inch long, cylindrical piece of metal weighing about five pounds came through the roof over a storage closet Wednesday or Thursday.
Federal Aviation Administration inspectors determined that the piece of metal, broken at both ends, was not an airplane part.
An FAA spokeswoman says the chunk likely came from a piece of heavy machinery, possibly a wood chipper. That still doesn't explain how it came crashing through the roof.
Police are also stumped.
The owner of Michael's Furniture Warehouse says someone could have been killed.
