Foot found on Vancouver shore.

On the shore of Vancouver a foot encased in a running shoe washed up. This would be interesting in itself, however, this isn’t something new. This is the 11th foot that has washed up on the shore of Vancouver or Washington state since 2007.

Surprisingly, researchers are not concerned about it. They say it is not something mysterious and that it is from natural decay in the ocean that the feet get detached.

“Running shoes of today are more buoyant,”  Stephen Fonseca told ABC. “It’s a very rational explanation that when the feet do disarticulate, through marine scavenging and decomposition, the shoe will bring the foot back up to the surface and it will float there until it reaches shoreline.”

Researchers say that the feet most likely come from people who jump off bridges to their death.
