Grand Piano on a Sand Bar

Some Miami residents couldn't believe their eyes when they saw a grand piano out in Biscayne Bay, perched atop a sandbar.
How and why the piano got there is a mystery. A grand piano weighs at least 650 pounds and is unwieldly to move, said Bob Shapiro, a salesman at Piano Music Center in Pembroke Park. ``You don't take it out there in a rowboat,'' Shapiro said.

This much is clear, however: The piano isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Unless it becomes a danger to wildlife or boaters, authorities have no plans to haul it away.

``We are not responsible for removing such items,'' said Jorge Pino, a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. ``Even a car can become a habitat for wildlife. Unless the item becomes a navigational hazard, the Coast Guard would not get involved.''

Even though the piano remains above water even at low high tide, no music has been heard from it. Link -via Arbroath

Update: Looks like the person responsible has been found. Read about it at NeatoBambino.
