A millionaire businessman has spoken about how he became victim to a cruel prank, where a dead pig was dropped into his swimming pool from a helicopter.
60-year-old Federico Alvarez Castillo was stunned when sick pranksters dropped a dead animal into his private swimming pool in Punta del Este in Uruguay.
Initially, people thought Castillo, who works as a retail and real estate entrepreneur, had something to do with the horrible prank after the video of the incident went viral on social media.
But after he got to know about the viral video, he released a statement, where he said he is working to find the pranksters.
Federico said, “In respect of the video that is circulating on social media, I want to repudiate this act of vandalism which my family and I were victim of and clarify that when the incident happened we were inside our house and heard a loud noise in the garden.”
He added, “When we went out to see what it was, we saw the disgusting action which caused us a great deal of upset as a very, very sick joke. For this reason we repudiate these types of actions and we are working towards clarifying what happened as soon as possible.”
In the video, you can see a helicopter hovering over the house of Federico before the pranksters dropped a pig in mid-air.
The poor defenseless animal fell and hit the middle of the businessman’s swimming pool with a loud splash.
It is believed that the pig died when it was hurled out of the helicopter, but there was no official confirmation for this.
But that’s not it, Lara Bernasconi, the wife of Castillo, told the local news agencies that the animal was a lamb not a pig.
During an interview with a local news agency, Lara said, “Someone threw a lamb from a helicopter. We don’t have anything to do with this situation.”
But if we take a close look at the video, the animal looks like a pig not a lamb.
It is still not clear if Castillo or his wife filed a complaint at the local police station about the incident.
The police didn’t release any statement about the incident.
People who saw the video are concerned about the animal, hoping it didn’t suffer when it was thrown down from the helicopter.
