An Argentinian millionaire was startled when he received a surprise from the sky and landed directly in his pool, in an unbelievable way.
Federico Alvarez Castillo, 60, has hit back after the ‘vandals’ dropped the animal from height into his private pool in Punta del Este, Uruguay.
People initially suspected Castillo, a retail and real estate entrepreneur, had something to do with the ‘prank’ after footage of the incident went viral. However, he soon dispelled those doubts and said he was working to get to the bottom of who was behind the ‘sick joke’.
Federico Alvarez Castillo was sitting on the bullfrog and enjoying a dynamic day when he spotted the sound of a helicopter flying on his roof. “Hey, did I buy a helicopter?” – Castillo was surprised and looked outside to check.
In the video, a helicopter can be seen hovering over Federico’s private family resort before someone drops a pig in mid-air. The defenseless animal falls before hitting the middle of the businessman’s swimming pool with a loud splash.
Quite weird, isn’t it? As soon as the video became viral, many people suspected that the 59-year-old businessman was the author of the strange joke
However, the businessman denied any involvement in a post on his Instagram story, which read (translated to English):
In respect of the video that is circulating on social media, I want to repudiate this act of vandalism which my family and I were victim of and clarify that when the incident happened we were inside our house and heard a loud noise in the garden.
When we went out to see what it was, we saw the disgusting action which caused us a great deal of upset as a very, very sick joke. For this reason we repudiate these types of actions and we are working towards clarifying what happened as soon as possible.
Netizens said that the unfortunate pig died when released from the plane. However, Castillo’s wife, Lara Bernasconi, told the press that it was, in fact, a sheep!
