VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. -- A shark fell from the sky and landed in a Virginia Beach family's backyard. Sue Boswer said her children found the baby shark last Friday. The 13-inch shark was found on a concrete path in the backyard.

"It was a little bloody on the side, and that's where the talons had poked him," Bowser said.

She said the shark was probably killed by an osprey that likely dropped the shark as it flew overhead. The shark -- or 'sharky,' as the family called it -- now resides in the family's garage freezer.

"I would like to preserve the shark because a lot of people have asked about it and I just think it's so unique," Boswer said.

She said she planned to show it to family visiting from out of town in the coming weeks. They haven't decided yet if they're going to give the shark a proper burial.
