Fake skeletons at the bottom of the Colorado River

Fake skeletons at the bottom of the Colorado River

While snorkeling in the Colorado river near the borders of Arizona and California, a man saw what appeared to be “skeletal remains” at the bottom of the river and alerted the local authorities.

While snorkeling in the Colorado river near the borders of Arizona and California, a man saw what appeared to be “skeletal remains” at the bottom of the river and alerted the local authorities.

An operation for searching remains was launched on Monday, just after the snorkeler called to police, and then divers from the Buckskin Fire Department swam down to investigate.ht_skeleton_water_1_tl_150505_16x9_992

But surprisingly these skeletons appeared to be a fake. All of them were comfortably seated in lawn chairs and were even wearing sunglasses. The La Paz County Sheriff’s Office admitted that their disposition reminded him of some summertime tea party.ODD Skeletons on Lawn Chairs

According to the police, one of the skeletons was holding a sign, where the words “Bernie” and “dream in the river” could be seen, but the whole picture remained unclear. On the sign there was also a date of Aug. 16, 2014, which might be the day of possible placing the skeletons there.285B50B800000578-3069242-image-a-13_1430880534461

The police said that the date could also be the link to the film “Weekend at Bernie’s”. They think that nobody wanted to set up anything or to scare anyone by such an act. The creators of that “skeletons’ tea party” might just try to be funny.

Lt. Curtis Bagby said that false alarm is a normal common case for them, because that’s just a first-responder’s life and they are trying not to make too big deal out of it. Also he added that he’s considering placing the skeletons, which the driver are to pull out next week, outside the sheriff’s office as a joke, because he wants to explain people that police understand some things that are fun, but at the same time he said that to his mind it’s not OK to go put something like these skeletons at the bottom of the river.
