A Florida attorney who has been dressing as the grim reaper to protest the reopening of the state’s beaches amid the coronavirus outbreak was interviewed on live TV.
Daniel W. Uhlfelder has been dressing in a black cloak with a sickle prop and has been spotted on Walton County beaches — including at lifeguard stations.
