It's raining fish!

File this under "things you don't hear every day." A couple in Winter Haven, Florida, got a huge surprise when a bullhead fell from the sky and ended up in their swimming pool.

Hear more about this bizarre story and how authorities think the fish ended up there in the following clip.

Watch the video below:

"We were watching TV and we heard a huge crash," Leonard Vanderpool told WFLA in an interview.

That's when he went out back and found the bullhead in the pool and a huge hole in the screened-in part of his porch. He called the local police because he couldn't figure out how it had happened.

It also served as back-up for the crazy story.

"It didn't seem like people would believe it," Dawn Vanderpool told the station. "(The officer) had to take pictures because he knew they wouldn't believe him back at the station."

The officer helped the couple get the fish out of the pool with a bucket and it was released into a nearby lake.

Once the fish was out of the water, they noticed talon marks on the fish and realized the bullhead had been dropped by a large bird, perhaps after being stung by one of the fish's barbs.

Amazingly, this isn't the first case of something like this happening. Back in December, a bird dropped a salmon on a Seattle power line, causing a two-hour power outage.
