Not a body, dummy

Herald Sun - - WORLD -

THE dis­cov­ery of a head­less man­nequin near a Ger­man canal has trig­gered a mas­sive emer­gency ser­vices re­sponse.

The man­nequin was spot­ted by a passer-by near the south­ern town of We­in­stadt on Mon­day evening.

The first po­lice of­fi­cers on the scene thought it looked like a head­less corpse and called for back-up. “It re­ally looked like a dead body,” a po­lice spokesman said.

Twenty fire­men were also called in. Pic­tures showed the man­nequin in a striped top and jeans with its an­kles bound.
