A video of a doctor unraveling the mystery of why sneakers with amputated legs continue to appear on the Pacific Northwest beach has been talked about on TikTok.

Since August 2007, at least 20 feet have been launched on the Salish Sea coastline from British Columbia, Canada to Washington, USA. mirror report.

The latest example is New Year’s Day 2019 When a beach fan on Jetty Island in Everett, Washington finds a foot in his boots.

Conspiracy theorists suggest that the horrific findings may have been the victims of foot fetishes and serial killers whose bodies were disposed of by the Mafia, but Dr. Karan Large told 4 million TikTok followers more. He said there was a brief explanation.

In a video currently watched more than 650,000 times, Raj explained that the discovery of the foot depends on the anatomy of the human body and, in part, on the design of the shoe.

“When a human corpse falls to the bottom of the sea, it is immediately attacked by scavengers,” Raj said in a video. “These scavengers are lazy feeders and prefer to work on softer parts of the body rather than tough and muffled bits.”

Large explained how some of the softest parts of the human body are the tissues and ligaments around the ankle. “When the scavenger bites it, the foot comes off the rest of the body fairly quickly,” the doctor continued.

according to Entomologist Gail AndersonHuman feet and hands often separate from other parts of the body when underwater, but rarely float.

According to Large, the buoyancy of modern sneakers lifts the sneakers and eventually launches them on the Pacific Northwest coast.

On why feet appear especially on the shores of the Salish Sea, Oceanography professor Parker McLady told National Geographic that there is a “perfect storm” in the area to wash shoes.

According to McLady, the fact that it is a large and complex inland body of water acts as a trap, allowing water-bound items to stay in the Salish Sea. He continued that the prevailing winds were westerly and tended to bring things out of the sea rather than pushing them out.

according to ParentsThe British Columbia Coroners Service has ruled out fraud in all investigations into the discovery of human feet in Canada. According to coroners, there were no signs of trauma to any of the legs, and all seemed to have died in suicide or in an accident.
