Illinois Family Finds Wheel Fell Through Ceiling

An Illinois family says they got the surprise of a lifetime when a wheel crashed through their ceiling. Luckily, Linda Taylor-Whitt’s family wasn’t at their home in the Chicago suburb of Lynwood Saturday night, but when they got home Taylor-Whitt’s daughter went into the bathroom and saw the wheel stuck in the ceiling. The family eventually learned that it was dropped from a helicopter based at the nearby municipal airport. Apparently, the wheel came from a device that moves helicopters from hangar to hangar, but must have been stuck on a chopper until it was right over Taylor-Whitt’s home.
