Chicken Little was nowhere to be seen. But for one Roscoe family, the sky was falling Wednesday, really. Despite temperatures in the 80s, a chunk of ice slammed into a house, and landed next to a sleeping 16-year-old.

At first the federal aviation administration was skeptical about the ice. But, an investigator has determined the ice did come from a passenger jet flying at a high altitude. The theory is the ice formed due to a leak in the drinking water system of the plane. Now, the search is on for the jet with a water leak.
