Following the grim discovery of former Supermodel, Katoucha in the river Seine in Paris by the French police on Thursday, yet another model has been found less than a mile away.
A man was out walking his Poodle when he spotted a bright red object floating in the water. Onion seller, Pierre Duval, 33, said;
"je prenais mon chien, Fifi pour une promenade le long de la banque de fleuve tôt ce matin où quelque chose de rouge a attiré mon attention. Elle a été accrochée à une branche tombée d'arbre près à où mon chien va à la toilette. Immédiatement j'ai téléphoné à la police."
("I was taking my dog, Fifi for a walk along the river bank early this morning when something red caught my eye. It was caught on a fallen tree branch near to where my dog goes to the toilet. Immediately I telephoned the police.")
The Model was well-built and about 5 feet long and was thought to be in the water for about 3 weeks. It was taken away in a police van for forensic tests at the Paris University Hospital.
It turned out to be a radio-controlled glider that was thrown from The Eifell Tower by a small boy visiting the Parisian landmark at the beginning of the month. As the glider flew out of range of the radio-control, it crashed in the river.
The little, unnamed boy cried when some bigger boys laughed at him.
