TORONTO: A Canadian family in Mississauga here, whose house lies just below the route which planes take to descend and take off from Toronto airport, was earlier this week shocked to see a load of shit deposited on their backyard.
Since the load of brown and smelly substance is appeared to have fallen form the sky, it is suspected that lavatory waste from a plane must have fallen in the backyard of their house.
“I stuck my finger in it and I smelt it and … it smells like poo!’’ says house owner Emma Gilfillan-Giannakos even as Transport Canada has ordered investigations to know whether the poo-like load fell from a plane.
“All I know is something came from the sky. And to me it’s either a bird or a plane. And there’s way too much of this to be birds,’’ the woman says.
She says she was sitting in the backyard of her house early this week with her children around when it happened.
“I was sitting underneath the gazebo .. with my son, and my two other kids were on a fort over here, and all of a sudden we heard this big bomb! Like it hit the pool.’’
The brown, shitty substance was splattered all over the patio, backyard and the pool of her house.
Before Transport Canada investigators come to any conclusion as to where the shitty substance came from, they don’t rule out the so-called `blue ice’ falling from a plane.
Now what is `blue ice’?
`Blue ice’ forms when a lavatory waste store on a plane leaks and the leaked shit freezes outside the lavatory tank. But when the plane comes down to descend, this `blue ice’ melts and falls to the ground.
Aviation investigators say it happens sometimes.
But whatever they say, the poor woman has been left with a bill of $5,000 for cleaning up the whole place. And her insurance company says they won’t pay her for it.
