You hear about this sort of thing happening all the time to tradies, but it still doesn’t make it any less terrifying when we hear about it!

With so much digging and what not happening on work sites, it’s not too uncommon for workers to stumble across something rather scary or sinister.

And this is exactly what happened to The Block’s Scotty Cam!

He joined Kyle and Jackie O this morning when he revealed that he found a DEAD BODY while attending a work site.

Kyle had been asking Scotty if he’d ever come across anything weird throughout his years as a tradie when the terrifying story came up.

“I tell you what, this is a terrible story and I won’t mention any names, but I found a dead body once,” he told us.

Kyle and Jackie were gobsmacked!


As Scott Cam continued his story, it sounded like something straight out of a horror movie script!

“I had to go down to this house to fix something up and the door was ajar, the radio was crackling like it was off station and I’m knocking on the door, ‘Hello? Hello?’,” he continued.

“And I knocked on the door and I walked in, it was pretty messy. And then there was a mannequin, like a shop mannequin on the floor.”

But it turns out the thing that Scotty hadn’t looked properly on the first glance and what he thought was a mannequin, wasn’t a mannequin at all.

“Anyway I stepped over the mannequin and I’m looking, ‘Hello? Hello?’. And then I realised, that the mannequin was a lady,” he told us.

“She’d been there quite a while and looked like a mannequin. I nearly had a heart attack… I was in my late 20s of something and I was freaked out.”


Oh. My. Gosh! We don’t blame you Scotty! That would’ve been enough to turn us off the trade industry for LIFE! Seriously, how terrifying!

But thankfully the finds on a worksite aren’t all bad. Scotty also told us about a time that he found a diamond ring and decided to keep it to give to his daughter one day.

“My daughter’s 20 years old now and she’s got the ring. That’s a good one,” he said.

So looks like there’s good and bad sides to the discoveries on work sites…

So crazy!
