According to soranews24, which translated the tweet, someone had “misunderstood” the whole situation and called the authorities.

Police, fire trucks and ambulances showed up at the scene.

A crowd of people were also seen by the water, according to a photo shared by Natsuki.

The incident took place at Hachinohe city, within the Aomori prefecture.

In the end, the ‘drowned woman’ was really just a sex doll, that had apparently been dumped into the waters.
