05/24/2004: The best laid plans of mice and men....
According to Baseball Library, a planned scattering of ashes went a bit awry two years ago today:
The pilot of a small plane carrying the remains of an avid Mariners' fan attempts to drop the ashes above SAFECO Field, but the canister bounces off the stadium roof and lands on the street. Fear of an attack brings police and firemen rushing to the stadium.Maybe I've got this wrong, but when you attempt to scatter someone's ashes, don't you open up the urn and sort of spill them out? Not just chuck the unopened urn out of the window of the plane?
