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.
