When a tiger got loose in the Packard Plant
Finding exotic and non-pet-grade animals in strange places in our city is not weird or unique in and of itself. But, having a tiger escape into a 3,500,000sqft abandoned auto plant during a professional photo shoot which also involved two wolves and a bobcat, is pretty out there even for the city that brought you Iggy Pop and raves.
When two babies fell out of different windows and landed on the same dude
Year: 1937, 1938
In the days before cell phones and social media, it was hard to document a strange occurrence. Joseph Figlock, however, had two opportunities to have a similarly odd one. A street sweeper, Figlock was going about his daily work when a baby fell out of a window and landed on his head, both emerging relatively unscathed. That would be weird enough, but then it happened again -- different baby, different window, but same street sweeper and same benevolent outcome a year later.
