A Royal Canadian Air Force helicopter on its way back to Miami-Opa locka Executive Airport caused quite a stir in a Northeast Miami-Dade neighborhood Wednesday afternoon, according to police.
That’s because an inflatable raft “separated from the helicopter” and fell through the roof of a home in the 14000 block of Northeast 10th Court, a police spokesman said.
The Canadian Air Force had been conducting an off-shore training exercise.
Police say the raft was not inflated and it is not immediately clear how it detached from the chopper.
According to a report on WSVN 7, the raft was still packaged in a square that measured 2-feet by 2-feet, leaving a gaping hole about the same size.
Police say no one was injured by the falling raft.
