Dummy on interstate billboard prompting 911 calls

Posted: Updated:
CINCINNATI (WLWT) -

A mannequin set up alongside Interstate 75 in Cincinnati, Ohio, is causing drivers to do a double-take.

A billboard placed atop a BMW billboard near the Glendale Milford Road exit has prompted many calls to 911 from drivers who fear it's a real person who's planning to jump.

"It's a very good gimmick I guess for them, but I guess it causes a lot of concern for a lot of people," said Alison Nahrup, who works nearby.

Dispatchers said they receive dozens of calls per week about the mannequin, who looks like an adolescent or child to many callers.
