Halloween Prop Frightens Young Fisherman
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
A boy in Illinois was fishing when something awful came up on the hook. He got a look at that terrible sight only briefly before it fell off the hook again. He alerted authorities that he had found a severed foot. A search and rescue team spent eight hours looking for what turned out to be a Halloween prop. Rescuers were relieved, they say, that it was a fake, though maybe not as thrilled that it took them eight hours to figure that out.
