Football-sized chunk of ice smashes into roof

A football-sized chunk of ice crashed through the roof of a house after apparently falling from a plane passing overhead.

Danelle Hagan and her nine-year-old daughter were at home in Brush, Colorado when they heard the kitchen ceiling come crashing down. They were not injured.

A federal aviation spokesman said the chance of getting hit by ice from a plane was "on the magnitude of a lightning strike".
