Item #: SCP-980-KO

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-980-KO cannot be stored on site because of its properties. To facilitate the area's containment, a 20-kilometre radius around the area is covered in vegetation and declared as a wildlife preservation area. Metal fences and signs are installed to deter civilian access. An observatory is built near the subject to prevent any approaching outsiders. Air traffic over the area is restricted. SCP-980-KO is known as a laboratory site in a nature reserve.

The anomalous events that happen within SCP-980-KO calls for body identification and disposal that must be carried out whenever the event happens. Furthermore, considering SCP-980-KO's properties, observatory workers should consist of volunteers who successfully passed a resistance test to blood and corpses.

Description: SCP-980-KO is an otherwise ordinary patch of land 100 x 100 metres wide. The surrounding non-anomalous land is divided by a faint yet noticeable border that is 10 centimetres wide and harbours no plant life. Scientific analysis of dirt to uncover the origins of its anomalous properties all have failed. Subsequent experiments confirmed that the anomaly does not root from the sediment.

Within SCP-980-KO, humans fall from the sky about 40 times annually. There are no known precursors for these events, but statistics show that it occurs more frequently in the summertime. All falling individuals expire from impact. No attempts to save humans have been successful. Judging from the screams heard during the fall, the victim is presumed to be alive before impacting the ground. In the event of falling humans, observatory workers should enter the area to retrieve the dead bodies, also identifying them. An interview with the falling people was attempted but failed due to the subject's panic and a short window of time.

The victims are typically ones who went missing five to seven years ago. The bodies are greatly deformed due to impact. Therefore, DNA tests and clothing on the body substitute as identification evidence. The victims' items are typically well preserved, but items that can store information, such as memory cards or journals, are usually severely damaged. The Foundation is currently attempting to restore data from such items.
