Discovery Fools Viewers Again; Showcases Fake Video Of Mermaid’s Body

Discovery channel recently showcased Mermaids: The Body Found, this May 27, during which, a young boy discovers the body of a mermaid. Well the story instead of giving a scientific base looked more of horror. Naturally! It was not real.

What else? More than 100,000 searches were made on Google Trends recently to have a look at the mermaid body found. USA Mermaids: The Body Found unveiled that the scene showcased is simply enacted and nothing is true.

It has been highlighted that the Discovery Channel has been named as ‘the world’s #1 nonfiction media company’. However, Discovery says, "What if there's a kernel of truth behind the legend of this mythic creature? Is the idea of mermaids really so far-fetched? Maybe so, maybe not”.

However, the editor added on a note in the disclaimer that the scenes aired in this two-hour special is fiction, although it is based on true events and theories of science. However, it is being believed that none of the viewers noticed the note or simply must have ignored it.

Even, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration recently released a statement, which read that there are no proofs, which support the existence of mermaids.
