Miramar Osprey Drops Bucket, Damages San Diego Business (Video)


An Osprey based out of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar accidentally dropped a five-pound bucket of cleaning fluid while in flight on Wednesday evening. The bucket crashed through the roof of a San Diego auto body shop that was closed at the time.

No one was hurt, according to the Associated Press, but a motorhome inside the building sustained damage.


A HAZMAT crew was called to the scene, but it turned out the cleaning solution that fell from the Osprey was water-based and nontoxic.

A Miramar spokesman said the Marine Corps will pay for any and all damage.
