A wild boar got into the ceiling of a clothing store in Hong Kong. As the boar kicked a hole in that ceiling, the excited crowd below looked on as the ceiling appeared to give birth to a boar.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with a story of what happens when pigs fly, or rather what happens when they fall. Somehow, a wild boar got inside a shopping mall in Hong Kong, and then it got into the ceiling of a children's clothing store. Shoppers watched it kicked a hole in that ceiling. Video captured the excited crowd.

(SOUNDBITE OF VIDEO)

INSKEEP: Which watched as the ceiling seemed to give birth to a boar. It's MORNING EDITION.
