A grab from the video

An Australian man ended up embarrassing himself after he got cops to investigate what he thought was a breast implant, but which actually turned out to be a jellyfish.

According to a report in Huffington Post, the man turned up at the police station in Maroochydore, Queensland, and told the cops he suspected a case of possible homicide. He handed over a bag which had a round, slimy bubble, which he felt was a breast implant from a female victim.

The Huffington Post report went on to add that the officers investigated the case before coming to a conclusion that must have left the man bewildered. A statement on the police department’s website said, “Investigations revealed what police suspected, that the item was indeed a jellyfish.”

Colin Sparkes, of Surf Life Saving Queensland, told BBC that the animal was a blubber jellyfish, a species commonly found in area waters with a sting, but which is not dangerous.
