It's Raining Men! Hallelujah! – It's Raining Men! Amen!
I'm gonna go out to run and let myself get
Absolutely soaking wet!
It's Raining Men! Hallelujah!
It's Raining Men! Every Specimen!
Tall, blonde, dark and lean
Rough and tough and strong and mean
(The Weather Girls, It's Raining Men)
No, really, it actually is raining men in Smithtown, New York. Men are falling from the sky. Well, okay, actually burglars are falling from the trees. Okay, it was just the one burglar from one tree. But it sounds even better exaggerated.
Riverhead resident Joseph Barwick was admitted to Stony Brook University Medical Center to be treated for injuries to his legs and back, Suffolk County Police spokesman Jeremy Samuelson said.
Barwick led police on a high-speed chase in a stolen car after burglarizing two liquor stores in Kings Park, police said.
The chase ended when the suspect crashed the car in a wooded area of Smithtown. He fled the area on foot, but police later found him hiding in a tree. He tumbled to the ground after losing his footing as he tried to climb higher in the tree.
It could have been worse. It could have been a Saint Bernard.
