FYI, giant blocks of cement falling from the sky pose no threat to people on the ground, in case you were wondering.

KANOPOLIS, Kan. (AP) -- Corey Armstrong and his friends got some company while swimming at Kanopolis Lake on Wednesday -- nine practice bombs dropped by accident from a passing B-52 bomber.

"I just saw them, when they hit, it was four splashes pretty much at the same time," said Armstrong, 16, of Salina. "The bomber started flying in circles after that."

Lt. Col. Jeff Jordan, commander of the nearby Smoky Hill National Guard Range, said the bomber dropped the bombs by mistake while on a training mission. He said the plane is based at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana.

Jordan said the bombs, all of which apparently hit the water, were filled with concrete, not explosives, and didn't pose a threat to the public.

He said the base in investigating why the bombs were released.

I think I'd rather be hit by the bomb considering it would probably be instant death.

The concrete could snap your back or something.
