Viral clip shows fish falling from sky, hitting car

A residential doorbell camera in Virginia recently picked up the moment a fish plummeted from the sky.
Over the years we've seen many cases of fish or frogs raining from the sky, but this is perhaps the first time that we've actually seen video footage to back it up.

The clip, which has since gone viral, was recorded by a doorbell camera in Virginia Beach and shows the moment a fish falls from the sky and lands right on top of someone's car.

A few seconds later, a woman can be seen coming outside to investigate.

According to reports, the homeowner - Carlos Maldonado - had initially heard about the fish from his neighbors and had refused to believe it until he watched the footage himself.
"A claim was already pending on another part of the car that got damaged, and then the fish fell from the sky and bent the spoiler," he said. "The neighbors said it sounded like a gunshot and they came over to investigate and saw the fish and knocked on our door."

So where did the fish actually come from ?

If you look closely at the top left of the frame near the start of the video, you can see the culprit swooping in. In all likelihood - the bird had inadvertently dropped the fish right at that moment.

This makes the most sense - or somebody fired it from a homemade catapult/launcher just to mess with people. If it were actually raining fish you would think there would be more than one.

I see hawks, eagles, owls and others take animals all the time over the Saluda River, they don't have a good grip and whoops

The person who came to investigate in the blue dungaree the so called fish, makes me wonder, is it a hoax.

She is sat on her front porch bench and probably heard a loud bang and saw something bounce off the car roof, so thought she would go investigate. Either she is a neighbour or the owner visiting her neighbour and wondering what battered her car!

So a bird dropped a fish? There have been loads of reports of this phenomenon throughout history but I've never seen proper video evidence

Must admit I don't see a bird in the video. To me it looks more like someone crouching down behind the car, chucking the fish up onto the roof.
