PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — File this one under strange and unusual… and maybe even hilarious. A woman walking in Fairmount Park earlier this week was hit by a fish that fell from the sky above.
Lisa Lobree said she was walking a path between Kelly Drive and the Waterworks Pier on Labor Day morning, when she heard a rustling in the trees above. Then something came crashing down and hit her in the head.READ MORE: Penn Wood High School Students To Have Option To Receive COVID-19 Vaccine
“I think it might have been head, face, and neck because I smelled so bad afterwards. I smelled disgusting,” she said.
As she regained her composure, a friend she was walking with found the culprit.READ MORE: Dozens Show Up To Support Asian American Community At Stop Asian Hate Vigil In Norristown
“It bounced off Annie. Annie sees me go down, turns around, looks and goes ‘Oh my God! It was a fish,'” Lobree said.
Lobree suffered a small cut to her face and some swelling from the catfish, which was over a foot long. She admits to being a bit hysterical at first, but now she can see the humor in the bizarre story.

As for where the fish came from, a few friends spotted a bird flying away right after the fish fell, probably a little upset that it just lost his lunch.
