Meat falling from the sky is weird, even by Florida standards. But that’s what happened at 4 a.m. Saturday when a 15-pound bag of frozen pork landed on the Deerfield Beach home of Travis Adair and his family.

Adair said the package hit his roof with a “big bang.”

He thought it was thunder, but his wife Jennie later went outside and found two bundles next to the house.

His son Austin found three on the roof.

“It had to fall from the sky,” Adair said. “It was too heavy to throw on the roof.”

The home is near three airports, so Adair thinks it fell from a plane.

The Federal Aviation Administration had no immediate comment.

Labeling on the package shows it originally belonged to Jim Williams, who lives 170 miles away in Myakka City, a rural town of 6,300 residents.

Williams said has no idea how the meat ended up on the Adairs’ roof. He is not a pilot and doesn’t own a plane.

“I would have thought 15 pounds of frozen meat falling from an airplane would have put a hole in the roof,” Williams said.
