A homeowner who survived Japan’s worst typhoon in over half a century has shared this image showing who it dumped a human skeleton on his doorstep.
Twitter user ‘Jiyurei’, who lives the worst-hit Kanto region in Central Japan, discovered the unsettling sight on 13th October, the day after Typhoon Hagibis made landfall and caused widespread havoc.
The resident wrote: “Human bones have flowed into my carport along with earth and sand.”
The images show a cranium, a skull and what appears to be a femur and other scattered pieces of human remains.
It was not immediately clear whether the skeleton belonged to only one individual.
Social media users guessed the landslide likely upturned a nearby graveyard, and the homeowner was urged to contact the police in case he had actually stumbled upon something far more sinister, such as the site of a murder.
Super Typhoon Hagibis had caused at least 74 deaths as of today (16th October).
At least 12 people remain missing while more than 200 were injured by the region’s most serious tropical storm for six decades since Typhoon Ida in 1958.
Kanto region is home to over 42 million inhabitants including residents of the Greater Tokyo Area.
