In a city with nicknames such as "Hollyweird" and "La-La Land," strange occurrences are pretty much par for the course. Nonetheless, this story about a large chunk of ice that crashed through the roof of a Fontana house and into a chair where minutes earlier a man had been sitting was spooky. Who would worry about getting crushed by ice while sitting in a pink chair watching television indoors in the middle of summer?

Also, did anyone else hear this story and think of Donnie Darko?
