Mystery Object Falls from Sky into South Dallas Home


By BJ Austin, KERA News

Dallas, TX – Police still have no idea WHAT fell through the roof of a home on Buford Drive in South Dallas yesterday.

Investigators say no one was home when a "large piece of metal fell from the sky" and hit the house with enough velocity to also go through the second floor.

The debris is described as a six pound piece of chard metal with two holes drilled in it.

The Dallas Fire Department's Biohazard unit was called to check for radioactivity. There was none. Police say the FAA and NASA are looking at it.
