Catfish falls from the sky, hits woman in the face


PHILADELPHIA, PA (KRON) — A Philadelphia woman was hit in the face by a catfish after it literally fell from the sky.

It happened on Labor Day morning when the woman was walking at a park with a group of friends.

She heard a rustling in the trees above. That’s when the foot-long fish came crashing down and hit her in the head.

At first, she didn’t realize what had happened until a friend found the culprit.

“It bounced off Annie. Annie sees me go down, turns around, looks and goes ‘Oh my God! It was a fish,’” the woman said.

She suffered a small cut on her face and some swelling.

Friends say the fish came from a bird that was seen flying away shortly after the fish fell.Copyright 2016 KRON
