A ball of ice came crashing down on a golf course in Victoria, Australia


Good morning. I'm A Martínez.

A ball of ice came crashing down on a golf course in Victoria, Australia, yesterday. At first, Superintendent Dylan Knight thought water in the sprinkler system had frozen. But, given the divot in the ground and how it had scattered, he thinks it fell from an airplane. Knight says that, in his experience, ice isn't the only thing that's fallen from the sky.

DYLAN KNIGHT: I've had fish drop from birds on greens.

MARTÍNEZ: If a golfer can walk off the green with a birdie, they will take it, even if it's fishy.
