Falling block of ice captured on CCTV camera


Posted on Saturday, 10 February, 2018 | Comment icon 6 comments
New footage has emerged showing a large chunk of ice narrowly missing pedestrians on a London street.
The ice, which had presumably fallen from an aircraft flying overhead, was seen smashing on to the road just a few feet away from a street cleaner who had been standing nearby.

The incident, which occurred on Wednesday morning, happened near Kew Gardens station underneath a busy flight path into London's Heathrow Airport.

The falling ice was filmed by a nearby taxi firm's security camera.

"When I watched the footage back I was shocked to see it was the size of a boulder," said the firm's boss, Mos Sayed. "It was enormous. It must have been about 20kg."

"If it had fallen on someone, it would have killed them. It's shocking really. I walk along that street with my children every day. We should all be grateful no one was severely injured."

My wife, two other friends and myself were hiking in the Sequoia forest here in California.  We were up there camping for the Millenium New Year, back in 2001. We'd been warned by the rangers before going out this day, that high wind was particularly dangerous in this forest.   Because Sequoia branches are the size of medium trees and when they break free, they fall from 300-350 feet in the air. At one point, we'd all settled on a fallen log to rest for a time.  Not thirty seconds after we stood up, a massive crack was heard above us, and a branch the size of a tree from my front yard at home,...
