A Delaware County family narrowly avoided injury after a chunk of ice came crashing through their home Wednesday evening.

The incident happened shortly after 8:00 p.m. in the 1300 block of Donna Drive in Woodlyn.

Ed and Penny Myers said they were getting their 4-year-old daughter ready for bed when the icy object tore a 3-foot through the roof.

"There was this explosion in the room. At first I thought it was the T.V. shattering and glass, then I looked up and saw the hole in the ceiling and I was afraid the whole ceiling was going to collapse," said Penny.

Penny and her daughter were both hit by what they thought was glass, but they soon noticed icy debris on the ground. While there were no major injuries, Penny said she scraped her leg and her daughter Lindsay had a scrape on her stomach.

"A huge amount of ice shot to every corner of the room and it was just a complete disaster," said Ed Myers.

Myers added a plane will occasionally fly over there home, which is located a few miles from the end of a runway at the Philadelphia International Airport. The family believes the ice was either waste water or fell off of a plane's landing gear.

The FAA is investigating the incident in hopes of determining the origin of the ice.
