SASKATOON, Canada (NBC/CBC) - A three-story-high icicle that formed on the side of an apartment building in Canada has been brought down.
Snow and a lot of melting and freezing caused it to form this winter.
The massive icicle made headlines across Canada and beyond -- and even had its own Twitter account @gianticicle.
But the icicle didn't have fans at Saskatoon's fire department.
Authorities were worried pieces of it could fall and hurt people.
"Well, something that size could definitely penetrate a wall, go through a window, and it could injure somebody quite severely if it fell on top of them," said Saskatoon Fire Protective Services official Bill Coffin.
