Grand Piano Found on Sandbar Miami BayJanuary 26th, 2011 - 12:17 am ICT by Angela Kaye Mason
Jan (THAINDIAN NEWS) A grand piano, which weighed at least 650 pounds, was recently discovered on a sandbar located about two hundred yards from the condominiums on Miami, Florida’s Biscayne Bay. The instrument was set in the highest part of the sand bar, and does not get flooded when the high tide moves in to the area, according the the Washington Post.
Officials have no idea how the piano got to the sandbar, but says there is no need for them to move it, as long as it poses no threat to boaters or wildlife in the area. A spokesperson for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Jorge Pino stated that it is not the job of their agency to remove items such as this.
Pino also added that the United Stated Coast Guard would have no need to get involved unless the piano were to become a hazard to navigation. In the meantime, the seagulls wish to thank whoever placed the piano on the sandbar, giving them a “classical” roosting place.
