Lawnmower decoration attracts 911 calls

It happens all the time during Halloween. Someone creates a decoration or scene that looks so realistic that people call 911. Well, this time calls happened in North Carolina.  A homeowner, just wanting to pull a little Halloween prank, created a scene that prompted at least one call to 911.

The call came into the county's 911 Communication Center Monday morning after the caller stated that he saw what appeared to be a man trapped under a riding lawn mower.
Luckily, someone else quickly let the 911 folks know it was a decoration, just in time to stop what would have been an emergency response.

As seen in the pictures the scene does appear realistic. The blood covered arms and legs stick out from beneath a blood spattered lawn mower on a large patch of grass.  This is the second year the decoration has been up, so police already had it on the radar.
Notice the beer can on the hand!
