He escaped certain death after a strange thing fell on him from the sky

A man in the US state of Maine miraculously escaped certain death after a huge metal plate weighing 2-3 kg fell from a passenger plane that was flying overhead, falling two meters away from it.

Officials in the US state of Maine have now begun to investigate how a piece of metal weighing 2-3 kg was released from the plane last week (August 12).

Craig Donahue, Capitol Police Inspector, survived by pure chance after the cylindrical metal object hit the ground two meters from him outside Maine's home, an often crowded home that has been used at rallies, protests and press conferences in recent months. .

The FAA was called in quickly on Friday and officials arrived to investigate the accident.

"He was definitely shocked by the accident," Capitol Police Chief Matthew Clancy said of his colleague. He was walking back into the building when he got this alert.

The body, which was completely obliterated upon impact, is believed to have been a metallic casing from the wing flap of a large airliner.

All airlines operating that day were then notified and all aircraft landed safely within the time frame.
