At this point in LEFty’s travels things went a little wrong. LEFty was sent to GKP for a skiing holiday to Canada, unfortunately LEFty was delayed in transit and missed the skiing trip so had to be posted off to his next stop in Alabama. After some time and no appearance in Alabama, GKP claims there was an issue somewhere over the Atlantic with the cargo doors on the aircraft failing. 32,000ft straight down and….plop into an iceberg goes LEFty:

LEFty’s escape was even captured on video:

Safely retreived he was bundled in to a much bigger distant cousin and gave him a lift home:
