On Sunday, June 13th, a 20 something young man decided to walk and swim naked on the beach during filming at the OB Pier.
(Editor: “Firefly” is the name of the company that was shooting the promotional stills and video for the show “Terriers”. It’s nothing to do with the show “Firefly”.) FX was filming a show which was originally thought to be “Firefly” the derailed sci-fi series, and they had a crew of 40-50 members with at least as many onlookers, when the young man stripped off his clothes, walked on the beach for awhile, and then went into the water. He was in the water just for awhile, and then he tried to climb up a barnacle encrusted concrete pier support but to no avail.
SD Lifeguards and EMT finally corralled the guy. They wrapped him in a bright YELLOW blanket they use to cover dead bodies.
After talking to him on the beach, they placed the slightly dazed and confused guy on a stretcher and took him to the hospital for observation. Well, it seemed like a good idea before the SDPD showed up !!!
