N.J. man has close call with flying chunk of metal
JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Al Smith was forklifting a sofa in his moving company's warehouse in Jersey City on Wednesday morning when he heard a sound he thought was a bomb. A chunk of hot metal the size of a brick came crashing through the roof just steps from him.
The Federal Aviation Administration looked at the object and determined it wasn't from an airplane. Mayor Jerramiah Healy said the cast iron object came from a nearby wood chipper.
Smith was not hurt but said he was shaken up. He feels so lucky it missed him that his next step was to buy a lottery ticket.
