(CBS/AP) ISTANBUL - When a woman's body was spotted floating in the Black Sea off the northern Turkey coast, panicked residents reported the sighting to police. A stretch of beach was cordoned off, and a team of divers was dispatched for a potential rescue, the Milliyet newspaper reported on Sunday.
What they "rescued" was an inflatable sex doll.
The divers quickly discovered the apparent drowning woman was in fact a blow-up doll, which they promptly deflated before throwing it in the garbage, the newspaper said.
It's not clear where the inflatable toy had came from. The Black Sea is a prime tourism destination for Turks and also host to international shipping traffic.
