Blundering police sparked a full-scale
alert when they discovered a realistic toy doll discarded on a park
bench – and mistook for a real baby. Shocked Martin Ziegler, 37, raised the alarm when he discovered the 'baby' in a plastic bag at Neu Ulm in Germany. He told police: ‘The baby is not moving or breathing - and its body is cold to the touch. I think it's dead.’
The doll was so realistic that it even fooled officers who urged ambulance staff to get to the park as quickly as possible.
They then alerted colleagues that the incident was an abandoned baby. It was only when medics arrived that it was discovered the baby was actually a lifelike doll. A
police spokesman said: ‘It was only when they opened the baby's eye and
shone a light on it that they realised the baby was an unbelievably
lifelike doll.’ He said they were now searching to track the owner of the valuable doll and to work out how it ended up on a park bench.
what bothers me most about this. is the fact that someone just tossed that doll away, thats art.
i wonder who the artist is for this doll. MICHELLE
