Man thought dead was simply asleep in Susquehanna River

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (AP) - They thought he was dead - until he sat up. Police and a coroner were called to the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania after getting a report a man was floating face up in a lifejacket just below a dam. The area is no stranger to drowning.

Turns out the man had fallen asleep while cooling off a hot summer day. He didn't know what was going on until a dragonfly landed on his nose. That's when he sat up. He apologized for the confusion.
