It was the second-wettest day on record Wednesday in the Las Vegas area. So, naturally, there were some who wanted to ride an air mattress down a flood channel.
Yes, said the National Weather Service's Andrew Gorelow, "there were three kids who decided to jump on an air mattress and ride it."
That got the attention of a police helicopter, the Las Vegas-based meteorologist told the Los Angeles Times in an interview Thursday morning.
All three were shirtless, according to an Associated Press report, and waving to a TV camera crew as they rode the mattress down a flood canal in Henderson, Nev.
