Ammo box crashes through roof of Texas school after falling from Black Hawk helicopter

Business Insider – by Daniel Brown

Authorities are trying to determine how a box of ammunition fell from a military helicopter and crashed through the roof of an elementary school in Texas.

The Ysleta Independent School District says no one was injured when the ammo box hit Parkland Elementary School in El Paso on Thursday afternoon. The ammo box left a hole in the roof and caused a power outage in part of the building.  

The ammox box fell from a Black Hawk helicopter, Mike Brantley, a public affairs officer at Fort Bliss, told Business Insider.

Officials at nearby Fort Bliss say they’ll reassess flight patterns as part of their investigation.

In a statement, 1st Armored Division Combat Aviation Brigade commander Col. Jay Hopkins said he was sorry for the damage and grateful no one was hurt.

    Oh this explanation oughta be cute…a maybe false flag in El Paso, home to Fort Bliss, several drug and thug gangs (I taught a few of these delinquents in the mid-90s), and right across from Juarez, Mexico…
