A snorkeler in Arizona received quite the surprise when they discovered what looked like human remains in the Colorado River.

The scene consisted of two skeletons sitting in lawn chairs in what looked to be a macabre underwater tea party.

The supposed human remains were located near a boat launch in Cienaga Springs.

After sheriff’s deputies in La Paz county were notified, the Buckskin Fire Department arrived on the scene and sent a diver down to investigate.

The diver was fitted with an underwater camera and was able to record footage of the scene as seen 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,” according at a statement by the sheriff’s office.

Though many were relieved to hear that the skeletons were fake, the sheriff’s office called the incident “resource intensive.”

In the video, one of the skeletons can be seen wearing aviator sunglasses. The other is holding a sign that appear to include the words “Bernie.” This may be a reference to the 1989 comedy "Weekend at Bernie's" in which two men spend a weekend making a corpse seem as though it were alive.

The sign also includes the date August 16, 2014.
