Locals in northern Turkey were frantic when they saw a woman’s body floating in the Black Sea, so they called in help and watched as officials cordoned off the beach and a team of divers made their daring rescue. So everyone was less than thrilled to find that the “woman” was in fact a blow-up doll, Reuters reports. The would-be rescuers deflated the doll and dumped it in the trash; no one’s sure how it got ended up in the popular tourist destination in the first place.

A Washington state man said he got back one of the four fingers he lost in a wakeboarding accident when the digit was found in a lake trout! Haans Galassi, said that he the fisher man that found the fish were exchanging stories.  Galassi said, “Let me guess, they found my fingers in a fish.”  Nolan Calvis replied, “No, just one of them.”  Calvin discovered the finger while cleaning the trout. He put it on ice and reported it to authorities. Investigators were able to lift enough of a fingerprint to match it to one on record for Galassi who lost 4 fingers a few weeks back when he got tangled in some fishing line.

Authorities in Clay County, Florida said drunken driving suspect Warren Michael III, 23, was pulled over Saturday night after driving off the road, nearly hitting a parked vehicle and veering over the center line. Deputies say Michael’s eyes were bloodshot and glassy, his speech was slurred and he had the strong odor of alcohol on his breath. And…Michael told a deputy a squirrel inside his shirt was “eating” him. Part of the story was true…he did have a squirrel in his shirt!  Deputies had him secure the squirrel and then exit the vehicle. Police said the vehicle and the squirrel were turned over to Michael’s girlfriend.
