On January 16, Osher Gunsberg went for a paddle near his Venice Beach, Calif. home. He saw some dolphins. Then he saw a mysterious camouflage submarine with Los Angeles Fire Department stickers on it. It “ran away” and “later circled back to drive straight at us.” According to Gunsberg, LAFD officials and the LA lifeguards didn’t know what it was when they saw the photos.

Stay tuned as we update this post.

UPDATE: It appears that the submarine that Australian TV personality Osher Gunsberg saw in the water last week was an Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard (EMILY). EMILY’s are a remote-controlled life-saving device originally implemented in Australia. The devices have been tested by the LA County Lifeguards. Why it was painted in camouflage is still a mystery.
