A government agency in Canada has launched an investigation into why liquid feces allegedly rained down from the sky on residents of British Columbia.
Locals in the town of Kelowna claim that, on at least two occasions, overhead planes were behind incidents in which their cars — and in a few cases, their hair and clothes — were covered in what they believed to be human poop.
On May 9, Susan Allan and her son Travis Sweet were driving through Kelowna with their sunroof open when an overhead plane “inundated [the] car with poop,” Allan said in a statement shared with Fox News.
“It was quite disgusting,” Allan said. “I've had it in my eye, in my hair, on my face — my son had it all over his face down the front of his shirt,” she added.
Allan told GlobalNews that her stomach turned once she realized what had happened, and her son claimed he “almost vomited instantly” once he became aware of the smell.
She further alleged that some of the feces hit her in the eye, which required treatment after swelling to “the size of a golf ball.” A note shared by Allan, reportedly from her doctor, says she contracted conjunctivitis in both eyes.
Days later, on May 12, a man named Brett Yates — who lives near the same intersection where Allan and Sweet were “inundated” — claims he went to retrieve his car from the parking lot, only to find it — along with others nearby — splattered with he believed to be feces.
Transport Canada, the Canadian government agency that regulates travel in the country, has confirmed an investigation is taking place.
“Transport Canada is collecting and reviewing information regarding the reported incidents of May 9 and May 12 and, as such, is not in a position to provide more details,” said Daniel Savoie, a spokesperson for Transport Canada, in a statement obtained by CTV News.
