What Goes Up Must Come Down

This is apparently a fairly common New Year's tradition:
St. Petersburg, where New Year's Eve revelers have been known to fire guns into the air, is putting out a public service announcement this morning advising them not to do the same Wednesday night.

Last New Year's Eve, there were 16 incidents of stray bullets falling from the sky, and in two cases people were struck and wounded. One of the victims, David Mink, 24, of Clearwater, is featured in the PSA.
This is one of the many things I've learned from my wife, who has been a social worker for a minute now.
