ITHACA, N.Y. -- Ithaca Police are investigating a prank that tied up officers and other emergency personnel for hours Saturday. They say Cornell Police alerted them around 10:30 a.m. of a possible body in the Fall Creek Gorge.
After getting to the scene and taking a closer look, they discovered that in fact it was not a person, but a fully dressed mannequin lying face down.
The mannequin was about 200 feet below the Stewart Avenue Bridge, but police did go down to retrieve it so there wouldn't be any more confusion.
They are now looking into the incident further and ask anyone with information to contact Cornell Police at (607) 255-1111.
Sadly, a few people die in this gorge on the Cornell campus every year. It is something like 200-400 feet deep and has several waterfalls. There is a really nice spot under the bridge I am standing on here for swimming, except for the currents and the rocks falling on heads from time to time. There are several fraternities that are built on the gorge and you wonder if.....
