MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Crews were busy on Labor Day removing a 40-foot pylon that washed ashore in Myrtle Beach.

According to a post on the department's Facebook page, ocean rescue units with Myrtle Beach Fire Rescue found the pylon while out on patrol.

The city's public works department assisted with the removal of the pylon.

It was the second large piece of wood that made its way to the Grand Strand's shores over the holiday weekend.

Video filmed Sunday near 25th Avenue North showed what many thought was a large electric eel or sea snake. According to police, it was simply a 16- to 20-foot log that was brought to shore and cut up.
