According to initial emergency broadcast reports, a piece of metal reportedly fell from an aircraft and crashed through the roof of a Plymouth business Thursday.  The object tore a hole in the roof of Michael's Wholesale Furniture at 4 Mary B. Lane in Plymouth.

 According to a store employee, the object was roughly one foot in length and weighed several pounds. WBZ-Boston is reporting that it was originally thought to be debris from a plane, but that is not so according to an FAA spokesman. See the WBZ-Boston story here.
