article imagePlane drops frozen excrement, smashes house roof

Nepean - One of the odder stories of the week: 'frozen excrement' is dropped from an airplane and it crashes through house roof at high speed.
The bizarre event happened in Canada. The resident affected was Stephanie Moore, who says she was woken when a lump of what was later confirmed as 'blue ice' crashed through the ceiling of her house and landed some 15 feet from her head. Blue ice is the term for a frozen lump of excrement, and it had been dropped from a passing passenger airplane.
According to The Independent, Stephanie Moore, who was staying at her mother's house, said she was woken up by a crashing sound. On waking the 36 year-old woman saw a huge hole in the ceiling in the hallway. Exploring further, she found pink insulation, drywall, ceiling material and shattered bits of wood. These bits of debris were lying in a pool of water.
Exploring the damage in the morning with her mother, Ms. Moore saw that the hole in the roof was around one meter in diameter, large enough for the rays of the early morning sun to shine through.
Calling out a roofer to inspect the damage, the cause of the hole was not immediately obvious. There was no sign of a tree branch causing the damage or of any other object impacting upon the roof.
Speaking with a local expert, it transpires that the hole was caused by 'blue ice'; frozen excrement is, on rare occasions, accidentally leaked away from planes mid flight. It is so-named for the color of disinfectant used by sewage systems in commercial jet planes. CBC notes the affected home is located Merivale Road and Viewmount Drive area of Nepean, about three kilometres northwest of the Ottawa Macdonald–Cartier International Airport.
Transport Canada have said they are looking into the matter. A spokesperson told The Daily Mail: "The department takes all reports of possible debris coming from aircraft very seriously. Every reported incident is investigated by Transport Canada officials".
