MOSCOW (Reuters) - Six people have been killed in three days by icicles falling from buildings in a central Russian region, ITAR-TASS news agency reported Tuesday.
Plummeting chunks of ice is an annual hazard for pedestrians in Russia during the spring when the sun finally melts thick layers of ice and snow which build up on roofs over months of freezing temperatures and darkness.
Medical authorities in the region of Samara told ITAR-TASS that five people died in the city of Samara and another person died in the nearby town of Otradny between February 23 and February 25.

The icecicle in Diehard 2 had some help from Bruce Willis finding its way into that guy's eye.

My parents utilized an ingenious device for combating icicles on roofs...they called it a "broom."

Simple solution - don't walk under icicles :icon_roll
good advice, last winter there was one about 6" thick and 8' long off a steam pipe at work and I just couldn't resist knocking it down. Part of it hit me in the head and gave me a huge lump. I felt like such a stupid asshole.
