Falling Urine Deadly 
1999 Urban Legend

(May 1999) This unfortunate woman was found dead on parkland in Yorkshire, England. She's believed to have been pierced by a shaft of frozen urine which had fallen from a leak in a toilet facility of an overhead plane.

Auxilliary says, "While living in Germany in 1985, I saw a news report of a large block of frozen urine that had fallen from an airplane. Something was loose on the plane and a quantity of urine fell from the airplane while it was in flight. During its fall, the urine became a frozen mass and finally crashed through the roof of someone's house. In 1989 I saw a similar incident while I was in Virginia. It may be that time and repetition has produced an urban legend such as this."
