MIAMI, Fla. (FOX 13) - The life raft attached to a helicopter flying over a Northeast Miami-Dade County apparently dropped through a home's roof Wednesday.
Now the homeowner has to deal with a giant hole in the middle of their house.
WSVN News 7 reports the helicopter dropped a 2×2 package containing a life raft, leaving a gaping hole in the house’s roof, Wednesday afternoon.
Witnesses told WSVN that the drop sounded like an explosion.
Miami-Dade police responded to the scene. They found a woman, who was sleeping inside the house when it happened, suffering from a few bumps and bruises.
She was expected to be OK.
The helicopter owned by the Royal Canadian Air Force was headed to the Opa-locka Airport from an off-shore training exercise.
There is no word on what caused the life raft to come loose and drop.
