A video uploaded by Fox11 Los Angeles showed three rescuers approaching the body, with one of them checking for a pulse. However, they got a shock of their lives when the body suddenly sat up and said hello. Yikes!

The Tulsa Fire Department later announced on their official Facebook page that the man was merely cooling off by napping in a shallow part of the river.

They also advised the public to avoid taking naps in rivers for their own safety.

The river is low, but is still potentially dangerous in areas. Please stay safe and find alternate ways to stay cool!
