SAINT PAUL, Minn. - Bob Urman said he was sitting down in his recliner to take in a Twins game the night of May 7th when just after the first pitch, something came crashing through his St. Paul apartment's window.
"It scared the living heck out of me," said Urman. "I just stood there I was stunned."
He said the object broke through his double paned window, crashed into the back of his television set, broke glass all over the floor and when the metal object came to rest it was so hot it burned his carpet.
Urman said he called police and when they arrived the object was still hot to the touch.
"He went to reach for it and it was warm and he dribbled it out and he picked it up and put it on the shelf by the window," Urman explained.
Not one to be a believer of UFO's or anything extraordinary for that matter, Urman was convinced it fell off of a plane.
St. Paul police took it to the object to the airport where mechanics there said it looks like a part from a vehicle, not an airplane.
Urman isn't convinced of that, while he lives on Snelling Avenue, his window faces an ally, not the main thoroughfare.
The object is now part of an investigation and in the hands of the St. Paul police.
"When I was sitting here and I was trembling, I thought, what does it take to get to 81 you know," smiled Urman.
His 81st birthday is a month away.
As far as police are concerned, nobody was hurt, as far as they can tell no crime was committed, but if anybody recognizes what it could be feel free to call Saint Paul police.
