BROOKLYN - A Marine Park family is trying to thaw out the facts of where a chunk of ice could have come from after mysteriously falling from the sky.

According to Terry, she was sitting on her porch on East 36th Street Wednesday night when a block of ice about the size of a basketball shattered on the sidewalk and street.

Terry called the police, and says she thinks it came from an airplane. Officers showed up to investigate, but didn't have any luck cracking the cold case.

The family has the ice in their freezer and says they're keeping it until someone else is interested in taking a look.

Fortunately, no one was injured.
