While bathing and relaxing in the
American River, a group of TikTok users
stumbled upon what appears to be a spine.
In a video of the unnerving moment
uploaded on July 24, TikToker Ana Arias
narrates the situation while one of
her friends picks up the spine.
“So we’re at the American River and this …
looks like a spine, dead a**,” she says.
“There’s been dead people here”.
“What is that?” Arias then says as one
of her friends holds up the chain of bones
to give viewers a clearer look.
Arias’ “spooky” video received thousands of
comments from concerned viewers, many of
whom questioned whether the spine is human.
“That’s a deer spine from the
looks of it,” one person said. “Probably
a dog spine,” another user guessed.
Other users simply took to the
comments to express their horror.
“I’m never going to the American River again,”
one person said. “Y’all are really swimming
with dead bodies,” another user added.
In a follow-up video, Arias informed her followers
that she had “found more bones in [the same] area”
