MADISON - A warm day in Madison this week led to some people sunbathing in the grass.

Reportedly, it also led to others thinking those people were dead.

Madison.com says that a number of people saw those sunbathers and called 911, thinking those people had lost their lives.

"Please tell cellphone users that people lying in the grass are not necessarily dead," a dispatcher said to the online publication.

The next opportunity for sunbathers in Milwaukee will probably come early next week, according to the Storm Team 4 seven-day forecast.
