While much of the country has been enveloped in a heat wave for most of the summer, people have been turning to any means necessary to cool off. Including floating in a river.This guy was just floating along the river in Pennsylvania and wound up falling asleep. Bystanders thought he was dead, called in the police and just as the cops and the coroner were about to pluck his lifeless body from the river, he sat up!

Now, I have fallen asleep in the pool across a floatie before. I even fell asleep while laying in a tube going down the Chattahoochie River. The difference was, I had a floatation device. This guy had just a life jacket on. How he didn't turn over in the river and drown is beyond me, but it sure made for a story people can tell their grandkids!
