During a live, oceanside news segment on Friday's statewide reopening of Florida's beaches, WMBB-TV correspondent Faith Graham handed her microphone to a Florida lawyer dressed as the grim reaper. "I think it’s premature that we open our beaches,” said Daniel Uhlfelder while clutching the microphone with his black, leather gloves. “I’m a huge proponent of public beaches…but I think that the danger of bringing all the people here to our area and spreading the virus, I think it’s gonna prolong the recovery we have, and I think we should take better measures. It's too soon and it's not appropriate." Decider reports that after handing the microphone back to Graham, Uhlfelder twirled his plastic scythe and stood behind her as she finished her report.
