Bucket plunges from copter into San Diego business

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A Marine Corps spokesman says a bucket of cleaning solution fell from a military helicopter and smashed through the roof of a San Diego business, but nobody was hurt.

KGTV-TV says the accident happened Wednesday evening near the Miramar air station.

Lt. Tyler Balzer says the 5-gallon bucket of cleaning solution was strapped down inside an Osprey but it somehow came loose and slid out shortly after the chopper took off from Miramar.

The bucket plunged through the roof of a closed auto shop and clipped a motorhome.

A half-dozen vehicles were splashed with the watery solution.

Balzer says the shop owners can file a claim with the Marine Corps for restitution.

    President Barack Obama sent special operations troops to Syria this summer on a secret mission to rescue American hostages, including journalist James Foley, held by Islamic State extremists, but they did not find them, the administration disclosed Wednesday. Officials said the rescue mission was authorized after intelligence agencies believed they had identified the location inside Syria where the hostages were being held.
