Iced wee: Frozen waste falls from plane and ruins woman's caravan
- Filed under:
Caroline Guy, from Staffordshire, said she thought she was being burgled when she heard an "explosion" at 7am on Saturday.
She got up to investigate but found nothing out of the ordinary so went back to bed. It was only when she went to clean the caravan she keeps on her land that she saw the 18-inch hole in its roof, and found the yellow lump of ice.
Caroline has been told that nobody is liable for the incident, but she feels this is wrong as she could have been "killed".
"The caravan is a complete write off. I've checked with the Civil Aviation Authority and they say no-one is liable. But someone should be - I could have died."
The Mirror reports that she added: "It's incredible to think it nearly landed in our toilet when that's where it came from in a plane above us."
"When the plane is at height it freezes and then when the plane starts to descend it heats up and starts to thaw and falls off.
"The source of the leaks are one of three - the toilet facilities, the air conditioning or running water.
"These incidents are very rare but they do happen now and then."
