MILTON, Mass. — A close call for a Milton man on Sunday as an evacuation slide fell off a plane mid-flight and landed right in his front yard.
The FAA confirms the slide fell off a plane headed to Logan from Paris. The pilot reported hearing a loud noise, as did neighbors in Milton.
One woman told Boston 25 News that she was talking to her neighbor outside on Adams Street when the slide fell through a tree and to the ground.
"All of a sudden we heard a big whoop, wham, and we both turned around and looked and saw what looked like a tarp on the ground," said Stephanie Leguia of Milton.
Neighbors say they called police, who showed up with a representative from delta to take the slide away.
No one was hurt and the FAA announced in a statement to Boston 25 News that they are investigating.
Delta also released a short statement to Boston 25 News saying that they too are investigating the incident.
