Female shop mannequins are 'medically unhealthy'

Researchers looked at the displays in female fashion shops in two UK cities.

They concluded that if people were the same size as the mannequins they would be "considered medically unhealthy".

"There is clear evidence showing that the ultra-thin ideal is contributing to the development of mental health problems and eating disorders," writes Dr Eric Robinson, the study's author.

'Frozen woman' turns out to be mannequin

Police in the city said they responded to the call Friday morning with an emergency rescue crew. It was cold -- around five degrees Fahrenheit -- and the car had snow cover and looked like it hadn't been moved in a while.

Authorities saw an elderly woman in the front passenger seat, police said. She was wearing an oxygen mask. She did not move and was unresponsive.

An officer smashed the rear window, opened the door...and discovered the "woman" was really a life sized mannequin. The kind that is used in CPR training.
