A Seattle family got a big surprise when a metal bar fell from the sky and crashed through the roof of their home in the South Park neighborhood.

The incident happened Sunday, but the family waited until Tuesday to call 911, Seattle police said on their blotter.

Officers photographed a metal piece and an 8-inch by 6-inch hole that the metal bar made in the family's roof and ceiling.

Several KING 5 viewers said it's a grinder "tooth," which can fly off a machine used to grind up wood debris or tree stumps.

An officer at the scene surmised the piece of metal may have fallen from an "aircraft or a really big bird that had stolen a lead bar."
