Seems as though its been cut off and total report is unavilable.
Residents of a Tulsa apartment complex are extremely lucky to be unharmed this morning after a military munition crashed nearby after apparently falling off a passing jet.
It happened Thursday afternoon near 51st and Lewis. Police showed up after the power went out at the Canyon Creek Apartments. When they arrived, they found what appeared to be a bomb. They called out the bomb squad, who quickly identified it as a military ordnance.
The military later took over the scene and said it had indeed lost a 'dummy bomb' off one of its planes during a training exercise. The ordnance hit an electrical box on the side of one of the apartments when it came down, taking out the power to at least two of the apartment buildings.
But, Captain Rick Helberg says things could have been much, much worse.
"The electrical meters are mounted on the building, so two or three feet over and it would have actually entered apartments," said Helberg.
