Camera Lens Mysteriously Falls from Sky, Damages Roof
It’s a bird! No, it’s a plane! No, it’s … a camera lens?
Imagine how surprised the folks in Petaluma, California must’ve been when they realized that it was a Canon camera lens which left a hole in a resident’s home recently.
According to Mercury News, 55-year-old Debbie Payne’s neighbor heard a loud noise near the woman’s home a few weeks ago. When he stepped out to help Payne investigate the source of the ruckus, the two discovered that the roof of her two-story home had a hole and that two window screens were sliced open.
And the culprit? Why, it was just sitting right there — in the neighbor’s driveway.
It was a two-pound nine-inch Canon camera lens — and no one knows how or why it fell from the sky.
Petaluma police are attempting to track down the device’s owner using its serial number and questioning whether it was possible that someone dropped the lens out of a plane.
It’s worth noting that “FAA spokesman Ian Gregor told NBC he had never heard of a camera lens falling from an aircraft, adding that simply proving it came from a plane would be difficult to do.”
