5-Pound Catfish Falls From Sky Onto Philly Woman’s Face

Philadelphians live a wild life. They swim in the trash, take big ol’ country shits on the sidewalk, and now they get smashed in the face by foot-long catfish that have fallen from the sky.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Lisa Lobree was minding her own business near Philly’s Art Museum on Labor Day morning when she heard a noise in a nearby tree. Next thing she knew a big-ass fish fell onto her face.

“Suddenly I was slammed by something,” she said. “I was like, ‘What?!’ I was freaking out.”

The catfish, which is believed to have been dropped by a hawk or eagle, knocked the stunned Lobree to the ground, where concerned onlookers asked if she was okay as her friends shouted about a fish. “It definitely hurt me, and I didn’t know what happened,” she said.

Lobree’s injuries were relatively minor—just a small cut, which she thought was fish guts, and some swelling—but the olfactory damage was more substantial.

“I smelled really bad,” she said, adding that it took 30 minutes in the shower to wash away the stench. “I was so disgusted.”

Later, she developed a fever that she feared might have been caused by the fish; however, her doctors, who initially didn’t believe her story, assured her it wasn’t, though the stress of the ordeal might have had something to do with it.

As of Friday, a full four days later, Lobree was still telling the story.

“People are still asking me about the cut on my face,” she said. “They say, ‘What happened to you?’ And it’s like, ‘Here we go again.’ “
