The Tulsa Fire Department is reporting that a call about a dead body floating in the Arkansas River was actually a live person.

The unidentified man was said to have been sunbathing on a sandbar when witnesses contacted authorities believing him to be dead.

Authorities say they are unsure why the man chose that area to sunbath or why the man did not initially respond to first responders when they called out to him to check his health status.

They also reported that they’ve asked the man not to re-enter the water in that area.
