Woman Almost Struck By Turdsicle From Passing Plane

A Calgary woman was nearly hit by a turdsicle on Thursday morning at 09:30 local time.

Marian Licknes was sitting on her bed, talking on the telephone when the turdsicle crashed through her roof and landed on her bed. Melon-sized pieces of blue ice missed her by inches. Poor Marian thought she had been hit by flying glass in her neck and head, but obviously it was probably shards of the ice.

The Transportation and Safety Board is reviewing airport radar data to learn which aircraft let the turdsicle fly free. Since planes fly just minutes apart on the busy flight path, it may not be possible to pinpoint the aircraft which disgorged the turdsicle onto poor Marian's home.
