MIAMI – A baby grand piano is gone again from a Miami sandbar after a musician rescued the battered instrument for his son.
A towing crew took the piano Thursday. Its appearance on the sandbar in early January was a mystery until 16-year-old Nicholas Harrington stepped forward this week to say he put it there as an art project.
State wildlife officials had served the Harringtons with orders to remove it within 24 hours. But musician Carl Bentulan got there first.
Bentulan told The Miami Herald he plans to eventually put the piano in his living room. He said his 10-year-old son insisted the piano needed a home.
It was unclear if the Harringtons will seek custody. But towing company owner Lynn Mitchell says maritime law gives possession to whoever pays to salvage something abandoned at sea.
