Google Street View 'dead girl' prank causes panic

275x250.jpg An image on Google Street View of a girl's body lying face down on the pavement sparked panic among local residents that crime had gone undetected.

Families in Middle Road, St John’s, Worcester, feared something terrible had happened to a young girl on their doorstep, when they saw the shocking image online.

But they needn't have worried and contacted police -- because it was just a youngster playing a prank on her friend by pretending to be dead and not realising the Google car was passing.

Nine-year-old Azura - who says she didn't know the Google car was passing - had fallen over and was 'playing dead' as a prank on her friend… and inadvertently the internet.
