    Red face Jet the Lab Flys

    Thank goodness he's OK! Cute picture at link.


    TAMPA - You would think that a jet landing at Tampa International Airport one day in December would be nothing out of the ordinary. Except this was no aircraft.

    It was a black Labrador retriever named "Jet" that fell six stories from an airport parking garage and survived.


    Jet, who has a black coat and weighs 65 pounds, had apparently fallen about 70 feet and landed on the roof of a third-level walkway that leads from the airport to the Marriott Hotel. Airport police helped the men get to Jet, who by this time was hobbling and wagging his tail.


    It seems the fall was harder on Jet's best friend Rocky, a 10-year-old Lab who watched Jet sail over the wall.

    "Rocky was in the car, the windows were cracked and he saw the whole thing," Rivas said. "I'm not making this up. He would not eat."

    Only after Jet came to visit two days later did Rocky eat again.
