Pigs don’t normally fly, hence the expression, but in this case it seems some frozen pork did fall from the sky. While the origins of the meat were tracked down, no one has any idea how it ended up on the family’s roof.

Frozen pork falls from the sky with a bang

It happened on Saturday at 4 a.m. in Deerfield Beach in Florida, when a package of 15 pounds of frozen pork landed with an ear-shattering bang on the roof of the Adair family’s home. Travis Adair told Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday that when the package hit their roof, it made a “big bang.”

Just before it happened, Adair’s wife Jennie had let the dogs out in the yard when they suddenly heard a sound like thunder, as the package hit.

Jennie went outside to investigate and found two bundles of frozen pork lying next to the house. Their son Austin then climbed on the roof and found another three packages of frozen meat.

According to Adair, it had to have fallen from the sky, as it was far too heavy to throw up on the roof. There are three airports located close to the Adair home, so he believes it must have fallen from a plane.

Origin of the frozen pork found

After some investigation, it was found from the labeling that the meat had originally belonged to a man named Jim Williams, the owner of Williams Land Service who lives in Myakka City, around 170 miles way. Williams said on Thursday that he had bought some pigs in January at a county fair and had kept most of the resulting meat, but did give some away.

However, he does not have a clue how it could have ended up landing on the Florida family's roof.

According to the New York Daily News, Williams also said he would have thought the weight of 15 pounds of frozen pork falling from a plane would put a hole in the roof, which reportedly didn’t happen.

It was Jimmy Fussell, a friend of Williams, that had processed the pork in his butchers shop. While he also had no idea how the meat got there, he joked that the news certainly beats hearing about politics and said it had given the folks of Myakka City something to laugh about.

Local 10 News also spoke to a representative of Williams Land Service, who said in a statement that they have been working in the region for more than 30 years, but they haven’t yet gone into the air mailing meat business.

The spokesman added that if they ever do, it will be the day pigs finally fly.

How the meat got there is still a mystery

According to the Adairs, they threw the meat away, saying not knowing how it got there was suspicious. However, Williams told “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that he is prepared to throw a barbecue for the Adairs. It is not known whether the family will take him up on the offer.
