Body on Google Street View?
It's OK: The girl behind the car at left is only pretending to be dead.   (Google Street View)

(Newser) – A 10-year-old girl playing a prank on a friend just happened to do so as a Google Street View vehicle rolled down her street in the UK. Because the prank involved her playing dead near the side of the road, the image caused a ruckus when it appeared online. "I fell over while I was playing with my friend and thought it would be funny to play dead," the girl explains to the Daily Mail. She had no idea the Google car was nearby.

"One must again marvel at the concentration of the Google Street View driver who, presumably so dedicated to his or her task, didn't even notice a deadicated little girl lying on the sidewalk," notes Chris Matyszczyk of CNET.
