OK, people. I know it’s hot out. But surely we haven’t lost all common sense?
And yet, enough people believed this story from the dubious-sounding website breakingnews247.net -- a site that offers to let you “Prank your friends now!” -- that Texas Parks and Wildlife and Lake Brownwood State Park had to start fielding calls, according to MySA.com.
Parks and Wildlife officials didn’t mince words on Facebook.
Lake Brownwood State Park, which is between Austin and Abilene, really, really wants you to know it’s OK to go back in the water.
See, folks? Perfectly safe. Nothing to worry about.
