Crew Team Finds Giant Floating Head

Anyone lose a giant head made of Styrofoam and fiberglass? That’s what officials at Marist College in Poughkeepsie are asking after the men’s crew team found the unusual object floating in the Hudson River.

The team was practicing earlier this week when the coach spotted a large object floating near the river’s west bank. He hooked a rope to it and towed it to the team’s dock on the east bank.

The object turned out to be a 7-foot-tall replica of a man’s head made with Styrofoam and fiberglass. The head has the appearance of a Greek or Roman-style statue.

College officials believe it’s a theater prop, but so far no one has come forward to claim the giant head.

“For the time being we’ll hold on to it and see if anyone claims it,” school spokesman Greg Cannon told the Poughkeepsie Journal. “If not, I guess we’ll take suggestions on what to do with it.”
