DAVIS COUNTY, Utah — As if the Great Salt Lake doesn't have enough to worry about with dangerously low water levels, a family visiting one of Utah's prized jewels found it damaged with furniture.

WATCH: Great Salt Lake and Lake Powell water levels still at record lows

The Herriman family was walking along the lake when it came across a living room chair sitting just a few feet from the shore, complete with cushions.

It's not known how the chair got there or how long it has been sitting in the lake. A landfill sits near the lake, but it would take a mighty gust of wind to blow a large chair such a great distance.
