On the afternoon of July 2, a group of junior high school students walking by a river in Toda City, Japan spotted something round floating in the river.
Thinking it was a soccer ball, they fetched it from the water using a tree branch. Much to their surprise, what they initially thought was a soccer ball turned out to be a human skull.
Instead of being surprised by the discovery of the skull, what people could not understand is why in the world the students confused it for a soccer ball.
Here’s a comparison of a human skull to some sports balls.
See the difference?
Though they accidentally found the human skull, it is good that they reported it right away to the authorities.
