A Marty McFly figure and an Apple AirTag were stored inside a cannister and dropped into the Vltava river. Marty was then trapped upriver in Troja and re-floated. Now after a month, he was pinged 10km inland – someone has Marty!
16th January 2022: Marty was found in an area of the river that is normally used for canoeing slalom competitions – currently closed for re-construction.
Our reporter bravely climbed down to the river bed and retrieved Marty’s cannister.
The cannister was dropped from the Trojská lávka footbridge.
19th February 2022: Marty was pinged further down river near Husinecká street.
Marty was pinged in the same area for several days – it looked like he was stuck again.
Sunday 27th February 2022: We went on a rescue mission to the last-known location. It’s a lovely area of the river.
Sadly, our phones couldn’t ping the Apple AirTag and the cannister was nowhere to be seen.
Monday 28th February 2022: Marty was pinged almost 10km from his last river location.
It looks like someone took Marty from the river.
What is strange is that there hasn’t been a ping since Monday – is Marty locked in a cellar or has the battery been removed from the AirTag?
Hopefully, the finder will contact us and return Marty and his AirTag.
