A video clip showing police examining a discarded sex doll in Big Wave Bay has left villagers wondering who threw it out.

Three officers were seen unwrapping the life-size doll having cordoned off the area.

The video was shot at around 9:30 a.m. on Monday by a local resident.

“When I took out the rubbish this morning, I opened one of the bins and jumped back and… saw a body wrapped up in black garbage bags with masking tape around it, just laying at the bottom of the bin with nothing else in it,” a village resident in her 30s told HKFP. “So I went around to the other side of the bin and I opened it up to see from a different angle and it was like a legit body, kind of sitting up. Like I could see the head, the shoulders, and the legs.”

She said that one of the bin men called the police, who requested to speak to her.

“I went down there and when I arrived there they were just about to open up the bag, and then when they opened it up – with locals and people standing around – you could see the shoes… they didn’t open it from the head side. First, it was the shoes and then the silicon and then everyone just started laughing.”

In a local village WhatsApp group, villagers speculated that the body may have been discarded by an outsider, until it emerged it was a sex toy.

“My helper came running in and said someone found a body in a bin… then the bin man was freaking out,” another 36-year-old resident – who did not wish to be named – told HKFP. “He called the police – everyone found it hilarious. Apparently it was quite heavy.”

Police said they did not have details of any call-out relating to a suspected dead body on Monday.
