SHANGDONG, China — Police officers in China worked for an hour to retrieve a floating body from a river – only to find it was a blow-up doll.
About a thousand people gathered to watch the rescue efforts in Shangdong when police arrived on scene, according to a report.
The huge volume of people that gathered beside the water prevented fire trucks from assisting in the rescue operations.
However, officers quickly cleared the scene when they discovered the person was not real.
