FOX NEWS--Could this be an idea starter for a new TV show? "Tiny House, Mermaid Living"? Well, the Coast guard spotted this: a mermaid — painted on the side of a tiny house adrift in the Gulf of Mexico. It has become the talk of the Louisiana Gulf Coast.
The Advocate reports the Coast Guard said in a news release that a report of a floating dock approximately 180 miles south of Grand Isle Louisiana came in Wednesday afternoon.
An airplane crew from the Coast Guard Aviation Training Center in Mobile, Alabama, went out to search for signs of distress. Finding none, they issued an alert to nearby vessels, and are seeking any information about the object.
The Coast Guard later said the tiny house might have been behind a hotel in Key West, Florida, where it broke free from its mooring during a tropical storm.
