Police say video of floating cars a fake
A video of two cars suddenly floating in the air while driving down the road has gone viral online, but police announced on Weibo on February 5 that the video was a fake, according to The Paper.
As some netizens noted, the video was set in China’s Gannan area.
Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences arrived at the scene to further investigate and armed police also imposed a blockade around the surrounding area.
But they found no such incident had taken place in either Gannan County in north China’s Heilongjiang Province or Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Gansu Province after their investigation.
Police responsible for Internet security from Jiangsu Public Security Department said on its official Weibo account that several errors in the video gave it away, including disappearing zebra crossings, strange wire poles and wheels as thin as paper.
