(Scroll down for video) An elderly couple in Canada, was horrified to hear a large explosion in their home while watching television late one night.

77-year-old Theresa Couch of Calgary, said that the incident unfolded on Friday evening, while she and her husband, 80-year-old Richard Couch, where watching an ice hockey game in their home located on 100 block of Doverthorn Bay S.E.

In middle of the game, Theresa heard a loud explosion. She and her husband went into the kitchen, but nothing seemed out of the ordinary.

They then went into the hallway, and were horrified to see ice and debris on the floor. They looked up and saw a large hole in the roof of their house.

Theresa immediately suspected that a plane might have dropped the chunk of ice above her home. She swooped up the ice and placed it in her freezer as evidence.

Nav Canada launched an investigation into the incident, and they determined that the ice came from a WestJet Encore Bombardier Q400 aircraft that was flying into Calgary from Regina.

A spokesperson for WestJet said that the company will pay for the damage caused to the home.

Theresa said that she is very scared to live in the house as this could happen again, and the ice could land on her head and kill her.
