What started out as a rescue mission to save a baby left laying in the front seat of a locked car ended in embarrassment for police in Dudley, West Midlands as UK Police were fooled by one very realistic looking doll.
After a concerned citizen notified the police of an infant in danger, officers jumped into action—smashing Delesia Rattray’s car window. But they didn’t find what they expected.
When Rattray returned to her car she found a note from police telling her to call the station. Fearing that a baby’s life was in danger, the police smashed her window to save what turned out to be Rattray’s 10-year-old sister’s baby doll.
The doll was wrapped in a blanket with only its head poking out. Police have since apologized and agreed to cover the cost of replacing the window.
