A man was basking in the sun in Windsor, southeast England, when a plane dropped waste from its toilets over him and his garden furniture. This was according to a local councilor who spoke at a recent meeting.
According to minutes of Royal Borough of Windsor, Maidenhead's most recent aviation forum, the unfortunate incident in which a plane "discharged wastewater" occurred in July.
"His entire garden was splattered," Karen Davies, Clewer East ward councilor, stated during the October 14 meeting. The local lawmaker said that he was in his garden at the moment and that it was a horrible, terrible experience.
Davies explained that the "whole garden and garden umbrellas, as well as him", were "covered in poop." She said, "It's absolutely terrible."
Davies stated that frozen sewage is often dropped along flight paths every year. Windsor is located on the flight path to London Heathrow Airport which is approximately 8 miles from the historic city.
The Sun reported in June that locals in Portsmouth, south England were "terrified" by "frozen poops" falling from the sky.
Davies stated that raw sewage lands in someone's yard is rarer than it used to be. Another councilor suggested that it might be due to the warmer summer.
Geoff Paxton from Whitfield, a parish councilor, has been working with airlines for over 40 years. He said that what happened was "so uncommon" and something he hadn't seen in a while. Geoff Paxton, a Whitfield parish councilor, said that toilets on planes today are vacuum-secured and usually reliable because they rely on pressure suction to function. This unfortunate event must have been caused by an aircraft failure or inadequate service.
According to Maidenhead Advertiser the Windsor resident could not claim insurance due to the low cost of the damage.
