A chunk of ice, ?half the size of a car? fell out of the sky and ripped through the roof of a repair service area at an Acura dealership in Charleston, South Carolina. Authorities say samples of the ice are being tested by state officials, but for now, the source of the ice remains a mystery.
The ice landed about 9 a.m. last Wednesday, just missing a dealership employee and causing $5,000 damage to the roof and damage to a new car, according to St. Andrews Fire Department Captain Ray Gorham. ?It punched through the roof like you punch your hand through a piece of paper,? he says. ?It had to come from high up and had to be traveling at a high rate of speed. It had to be a fairly large piece because it put a 3-foot hole in the roof.?
