The incident occurred as the Hastings Pram Race was being held in Old Town, County of Sussex, England.
To be clear, a Pram race is when people wear colorful and unusual costumes while speeding through the streets pushing extravagant baby carriages.
So there’s that.
It was all made more interesting when a woman in a mermaid costume was bonked on the head by someone, or something.
The “attack” led to the following line in The Argus newspaper.
Sergeant Che Donald, of Sussex Police said: “It is thought that perhaps the group dressed as Dalmatians, crayons and a bearded lady may have witnessed this incident.”
The mermaid suffered a concussion but should be fine and able to return to her pod soon.
