Web Catch: AZ snorkeler finds skeleton tea party 40 feet underwater


The party was dead by the time one Arizona snorkeler arrived on the scene.

Or at least that's what he or she thought, according to NBC news.

A snorkeler exploring the Colorado River placed an emergency call after discovering two skeletons near Cienaga Springs on Monday. La Paz County Sheriff's deputies and the Buckskin Fire Department responded, dispatching a diver with a video camera to inspect the scene. You can take a look at his findings below:

"When firefighter Foerstner located the alleged remains, he found it to be an underwater tea party with two fake skeletons sitting in lawn chairs," the La Paz County Sheriff's Office said in a statement on Facebook.

Both skeletons appear to be enjoying their underwater soiree, with one sporting sunglasses and a bib. The other is holding a sign, the legible parts of which read "Bernie" and "Dream in the River," along with the date "August 16, 2014."

"Although the call itself was resource intensive," said the statement from responders. "Both the Sheriff’s Office and Buckskin Fire were happy to find that the remains weren’t real and thanked the reporting party for making the call."
