CIENEGA SPRINGS, Ariz. — A diver responding to a tip about possible human remains at the bottom of the Colorado River swam down to find an elaborate underwater tea party.

La Paz County Sheriff’s Office and Buckskin Fire Department were dispatched to the area near a boat launch in the western Arizona county after a person out snorkeling reported the find, according to a release from officials.

The diver, a member of the fire department, went underwater to investigate. He recorded video of what he found — two fake skeletons sitting in lawn chairs.

Despite the labor-intensive search, the sheriff ‘s office and fire department said they were happy the remains weren’t real.
