Evacuation slide falls off a plane and lands on man’s yard

A large, inflatable slide fell from the sky and into a Massachusetts man’s yard Sunday. It came crashing down from a flight traveling from Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport to Boston’s Logan International Airport.

“Who could know there’s something coming from the air and drops into my yard, right? It’s pretty heavy. You can’t even carry it,” Wenhan Huang of Milton, Massachusetts told reporters.

Huang said he was doing yard work, when the slide landed, crushing a few branches on a Japanese maple tree.

He realized it came from a plane when he saw the word “Boeing” on the side. Huang called the police and the Federal Aviation Administration was sent to get the slide.

The airline is investigating why the slide would have fallen, Delta said.

No one was injured in the incident.

“Our maintenance team is inspecting the aircraft; at this time we do not have any additional information .. The flight landed without incident and taxied to the gate under its own power,” Delta said.
