Meet Sam, a doll in the likeness of an infant, so realistic that it has anatomically-correct veins and encourages shenanigans by concerned police and passerby.
Sam’s five-year-old mom Chanel left the doll on the floor of Grandma Victoria Cristofis’ car, to which police were alerted and eventually arrived to smash in a window to liberate the child. It was only once they’d pulled Sam out from the hot back seat that they realized it wasn’t breathing – mostly because it was made of plastic. The police have since promised to pay Cristofis for damage to her car (nearly $400).
According to Cristofis, Chanel has only had the doll for a month and has already caused a lot of trouble by dragging, throwing, and nonchalantly abusing the doll as she plays Mommy. Evidently, the toy even smells like a real baby, but doesn’t cry, eat, defecate, grow up to wreck your car or have more babies. In other words, the perfect kid. [Source]
