Alright, this has got to be a first. Someone in Bay Village Ohio called the police because they thought there was a homeless person sleeping on a bench near a local church.

That "homeless person" turned out to be a statue of Jesus.

The sculpture was made by Timothy Schmalz and depicts Jesus wrapped in a blanket lying down on a bench.

According to a one of the church pastors, 911 was called within 30 minutes of the statue being placed outside of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church.

The church stated that the statue is meant to show local residents how serious homelessness throughout the world.
