Two 24-year-old men filming a comedy video for a friend's wedding ceremony, were swept out to sea in Akashi, Hyogo Prefecture, on Sunday afternoon. Police said the two men remained missing on Monday morning.
According to police, the incident occurred near Akashi Seaside Park just after 3 p.m. Sunday. The two men and seven friends had come to the pier to film a video of pranks for their friend's upcoming wedding, TBS reported. The two men had stripped down to their underwear. One was riding a bike and the other was on a kick scooter when they fell off the pier and were apparently engulfed by an ocean swell, police said.
By the time a search and rescue team arrived, there was no sign of the men.
At the time of the incident, the local meteorological observatory had issued a warning for strong winds and powerful waves.© Japan Today
