A big snowball weighing around 250 kilo came out of nowhere and crushed a boy to death in Scotland. The police describe it as a tragic accident and suspect no crime.

From: BBC: Boy dies under 'giant snowball'

Farmland in Torphins, where the accident occurred

Peter Strang had been playing with a friend when the snowball, reported to weigh a quarter of a ton, rolled down a hill and engulfed him.

The accident happened at about 1745 GMT on Saturday in Torphins, Aberdeenshire, Grampian Police said. There were no suspicious circumstances.

A police spokesman said the death was "the result of a tragic accident". They have not released further details.

Who could possibly have seen that coming? I guess this is one of those incidents that happens once in a lifetime.

Tragic and almost comic thinking of the odds for this to happen... It certainly just happened once in his lifetime :shk:
