SAN DIEGO (January 18, 2013)--A bucket of cleaning solution fell from an Osprey and smashed through the roof of a San Diego business, but nobody was hurt, a Marine Corps spokesman said.
The incident happened Wednesday evening near the Miramar air station.
Spokesman Lt. Tyler Balzer said the 5-gallon bucket of cleaning solution was strapped down inside an Osprey, but somehow it came loose and slid out shortly after the aircraft took off from Miramar.
The bucket plunged through the roof of a closed auto shop and clipped a motor home, splashing a half-dozen vehicles with the watery solution.
Balzer said the shop owners can file a claim with the Marine Corps for restitution.
