It was a sort of real-life Stand By Me in Rapid City, South Dakota recently.

According to the Rapid City Journal, on Sunday (10/16) some kids were playing on a hill in the Hillsview Drive and Canyon Lake Road area of the city when they found a dead body.

The kids stumbled upon the body and then told an adult who called the authorities.

The body seems to be of a man. The remains were decomposing, officials say they probably had been there for a few weeks.

Officials say they will work to determine the identity and cause of death.
