Salt Lake City firefighters responded to a report of a “dead body” in the Jordan River Surplus Canal on Friday that turned out to be a mannequin.

Coincidentally, the dummy belonged to the fire department and got lost about a year ago during a water rescue training session.

Officials made the most of the situation by using the mannequin to practice high-water rescue skills, something especially relevant considering the water is running higher than usual this year.

A Utah teenager “methodically” murdered his mom and three siblings — only getting stopped when his dad wrestled away the gun when he tried to kill him, too, according to prosecutors, who revealed disturbing new details this week about the five-hour bloodbath.

Colin “CJ” Haynie, 16, is being charged as an adult for the murders of his mother, brother and two sisters at their home in the small town of Grantsville, west of Salt Lake City.
