Man makes spooky discovery in the Colorado River

Posted: Updated:
LA PAZ COUNTY, AZ - A man snorkeling in the Colorado River makes a scary, but embarrassing discovery when he comes across a couple of skeletons in the water.

The man was diving near the Arizona-California border when he saw the skeletons sitting in lawn chairs in about 40 feet of water.

He called the local sheriff's department to report the remains, prompting the La Paz County Sheriff's Office to launch a hunt for what authorities thought were real bodies.

It didn't take long to determine the bones were fake and had been strategically placed to appear as if they were sitting together. The skeletons were wearing sunglasses and one was holding a sign.

The sign also has the date August 16, 2014 which is possibly when they were placed there.

Divers will recover the skeletons sometime this week and that officials are considering placing them outside the sheriff's office as a joke.

They have no intention on tracking down the person responsible for placing the skeletons.
