Body Washes Up Near 'CSI: Miami' Set

The drama turned all too real when a man's body floated up near where a crew was filming a scene for the crime investigation show "CSI: Miami".

The body washed up in Biscayne Bay at Bicentennial Park, which film crews were using as a helicopter staging ground for aerial shots of a fictional offshore investigation for the CBS show.

Authorities say a homeless man spotted the body and alerted an off-duty police officer who was working security on the set. The body had no signs of injury, and the preliminary report on the death is its not considered suspicious.

"Unfortunately, it's not unusual during certain times of the year that people who have fallen in the bay, either homeless or people who were asleep or in some cases boaters who had a mishap, fall into the bay and turn up days later," said Detective Delrish Moss, a Miami police spokesman.
