It’s reported that a Long Island couple were covered in sewage sludge when an airplane was taking off from Kennedy Airport. The couple originally thought it may be hydraulic fluid and immediately called the police.
“Some black liquid, black oil came off on her face, and I walked around and I looked and said ‘Oh my God.’ There was quarter-sized, nickel-sized, dime-sized drops all over my deck, my barbecue, my table,” he said.
When the police arrived they made a more accurate analysis of the liquid. It appeared that it wasn’t hydraulic fluid but treated sewage. The police called the FAA and discovered that there had been an “incident” and that the plane had dropped “a load” accidentally.
“He had spoken to somebody down at either the Port Authority or the FAA and said ‘Yeah, it looks like there was an incident,” he said. “Some lavatory excrement had leaked out.”
