Visitors to a hospital have told of their horror after spotting a 'dead body' in the window of a maternity unit.
Passers-by did a double take when they saw a pair of apparently lifeless feet sticking out from a blanket at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley, Scotland.
Hospital chiefs have now apologised to patients and visitors after confirming the 'corpse' was in fact a dummy used for surgical training.
But one alarmed dad-to-be said it was so convincing that it gave him a real shock.
The man, who was visiting his wife, said he was horrified by what he saw as he approached the building at 6pm on Sunday.
He told the Daily Records: “It made me feel quite sick. The feet looked discoloured, blueish, and there was no movement. 
“It would have been a strange way for anyone to sleep, at a window in a public place without moving, with your feet poking out the bottom of the covers.”
The man said the person appeared to be lying in an office, with filing cabinets visible next to it.
He added: “The body was so close to the window you couldn’t miss it.”
The man sent a photograph to the Record but our photographer realised on closer inspection that the protruding feet were plastic.
