A naked man ran through a Kansas City suburb before scaling a fence and leaping into a swimming pool filled with children.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Witness Amy Shapiro told NBC station KSHB-TV that traffic came to a halt at around noon on Wednesday as the nude man climbed out of the passenger side of a car in Overland Park, the second-largest city in Kansas.

Shapiro captured video of him jogging through the neighborhood on her cell phone.

"I was just like, 'Oh my God, this guy's naked,'" she told KSHB.

Shapiro said the man climbed a fence and dived into a nearby public pool.

"Everybody scattered," she recalled. "They all jumped out of the pool. They were just shocked. He was just standing there like it was no big deal."

The man stood alone in the pool for several minutes before being coaxed out of the water by police. He was later escorted off the property.

Shapiro's 12-year-old daughter Kylie, who also witnessed the incident, described it as "creepy."

According to KSHB, the 20-year-old man was taken to University of Kansas Medical Center for evaluation.

Police said the incident was being treated as a "family crisis call." The man was not expected to face any charges.
