A family in South Florida were left perplexed this week after their house was hit by bags of frozen meat.

The peculiar incident, which occurred in the city of Deerfield Beach on Saturday morning, saw 15 pounds of Italian sausage plummet from the heavens and land on top of their house.

"It was like thunder, and it awakened me out of a sleep," said homeowner Travis Adair.

"We got up, found two packages of sausage on our side yard, and then we were like, 'OK, well, we got to go on the roof and check and see if we find more of this stuff.'"

To add to the mystery, the sausages had been contained inside bags bearing the name of an Alabama-based land-clearing firm called William Land Service.

"I called them and the guy had no idea what I was talking about and probably thought I was crazy," said Austin Adair.

The family have suggested that the sausages might have been dropped from a plane flying overhead however it remains unclear why anyone would dump them over the city.

"I would love to know what really happened, because it's just so, so odd," said Austin's mother, Jennie.
