VIDEO: BALL DROPS IN OWOSSO...LITERALLY

Downtown Owosso

Despite bone-chilling sub-zero temperatures, hundreds of people poured onto downtown Owosso streets to usher in the new year with a Times Square-style ball drop.  The ball lowered in a seemingly usual fashion, but moments before midnight, seemed to get stuck.  Then, less than a minute after the clock struck midnight and Auld Lang Syne began playing; fireworks illuminating the sky, somehow the ball broke free and fell, crashing into the platform below.

We're told by those with an up close look at the post-drop ball that it sustained damage.  Fortunately, there appeared to be no injuries.

The incident was streamed live in a Facebook video on the Downtown Owosso page.  See the moment it happened in the video below.  It happens at around the 31 minute mark.
