Sex dolls as lifeguards in raging river rescue

sex doll lifeguardI’m a bit late with this one, but it’s too good to pass up.

From: 17/01/11:

A couple floating down Melbourne's Yarra River on inflatable dolls have been rescued after getting into trouble.

Police say the 19-year-old couple had just passed Pound Bend Tunnel at Warrandyte North when the water became turbulent and the woman lost control of her grip on the doll about 4.30pm (AEDT) on Sunday.

The woman grabbed hold of a tree that was floating in the river.

The man stayed with her and they yelled for help, police say.
A passer-by contacted triple zero and police and SES went to the scene.

A kayaker took life jackets to the pair and the SES attended with a boat and rescued the pair.

They were checked by ambulance officers but did not require medical attention.

Police say the fate of the dolls is unknown.

Who knows what happened to them; maybe they’ll wash up off the coast of France? ;-)

I notice the story didn’t venture whether the dolls were male or female, or if they were clothed at the time. Perhaps they were dressed in Baywatch style swimsuits?  Hmm… disturbing thought!

It also didn’t say how the couple happened to be in the company of the dolls in the first place. I’m letting my mind fill in the blanks. 

Either way, it must have made for quite a sight!


  1. Blow up dolls always make me think of the Roxy music 'In Every Dream Home A Heartache'.

    I opnce went to a Judge's dinner wheer there were inflatable sheep suspended from the ceiling. They had - erm - a hole to their rear ends too. I'm not making this up.

  2. Wow... poor sheep!! I hope his Lordship lubed up first! :-\
