    "A human foot has been found on a beach near the west-coast city of Vancouver, Canadian police say.

    It is the fifth human foot to wash up on beaches in the area in the past year. The latest find is a left foot, whereas the other four were right feet."

    Does this mean the depth off the beach is 5 feet?????

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Hmm......

    Oh I get it. Plane crashes = feet fall off! Perfect sense. :rolleyes:

    NOT sinister!!!! :butcher:

    If I find 5 feet washed up I would think:'' Hey ho nowt odd about that then.'' :eek:

    Do Canadians think differently?

    You tell me.

    "Our examination has found no evidence that the feet were severed"

    Oh man.......... now THAT is funny!!!!!
    How about the fact that there is no BODY attached to them??????

    Feet are separated from rest of body....either they were REMOVED or else they just fell off.

    Hmmmmmmmmmm...wonder which it is.

    Still a tad unsure about this,



    If this is the case then why aren't there lots of trainer clad feet washing up all over the world?

    Not being an expert on oceanic currents but even I would ponder at the following:
    Perhaps I am looking too closely at the more macabre possibility:

    My question: How long would it take for the ankle joint to decompose if submerged in sea water?

    If the 'plane crash theory is to be given consideration & possibly traumatic amputated occurred during the crash I could understand the floating trainer thing.

    However, If death is due to drowning (tsunami) then why not whole legs floating in?

    So, the decomposition?

    Anyone?

    Nice one!

    Dr. Brian Brodie DPM has apparently recently presented a paper on this bizarre story. It seems the BC/Wahington foot count is up to 16 now.

    The recent gruesome find of a male right foot (size 8.5 ) in a Nike running shoe washed up on a Richmond beach belonged to a dead man from the Lower Mainland, according to official sources.The BC Coroners Service used DNA analysis to determine the owner and investigators are convinced the death was not suspicious based on the circumstances of his disappearance and his personal history.

    In a recent edition of William Shanter's Wierd or What? (Discovery Channel) there was an item on the Vancouver Feet. It appears the most likely explanation was the remains belonged to people who had commited suicide by jumping from a nearby bridge.
