Can you imagine being the CHP!? Thinking you're rolling up on a BUNCH of dead bodies and it turns out to be mannequins. That's like someone calling saying there's a tiger loose in the neighborhood and it turns out to be cat in a tree.
Watch the story though, you can totally see how it, initially, looked VERY grizzly. Someone HAD to have done this as a prank, right?!
The California Highway Patrol said troopers responding to a report of body parts floating in the water next to a highway ramp were relieved to discover the limbs and torsos actually were mannequin parts.
The CHP said a trucker whocaught a glimpseof the seemingly grisly sight at the Arch Road on-ramp near Highway 99 in Stockton called 911 to report a suspected dismembered body floating in the water.
Troopers arrived and discovered multiple mannequin torsos, arms and legs floating in the water, instead.
The CHP jokedin a Facebook postthat the scene was the result of the lovelorn "Stockton Kraken" going on a Valentine's Day killing spree.
The mannequin partswere removed bythe California Department of Transportation to prevent further 911 calls from alarmed drivers.
