Hey NASA! ISS Space Junk May Have Ripped Through South Florida Home

•, by Tyler Durden

Days later, an X user named "Alejandro Otero" said some of that space junk "tore through the roof and went thru 2 floors" of his Naples, Florida home. 

Local media outlet WINK News spoke with Otero about what he believes is space junk that damaged his home: 

"It was a tremendous sound. It almost hit my son. He was two rooms over and heard it all," said Alejandro Otero.

Alejandro told WINK News he was on vacation when his son called.

"Something ripped through the house and then made a big hole on the floor and on the ceiling," said Alejandro. "When we heard that, we were like, impossible, and then immediately I thought a meteorite."

They came home early from their trip and found that an apparent man-made cylindrical-shaped object weighing nearly two pounds ripped through the ceiling and tore through the floor.

Alejandro believes it could have come from space.

"It used to have a cylindrical shape, and you can tell by the shape of the top that it traveled in this direction through the atmosphere. Whatever you burned, created in this burn and melted the metal over in this direction," said Alejandro.

Wherever it came from, it scared the Otero family.

"I was shaking. I was completely in disbelief. What are the chances of something landing on my house with such force to cause so much damage," Alejandro said. "I'm super grateful that nobody got hurt."
