CNN Heroes films on Tybee Island

TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) - Folks may have seen some strange lights on the water Thursday evening but they were not extra terrestrial beings.

It was a film crew from CNN. They lit lanterns at Tybee Island's north beach for a filming of a feature called CNN Heroes.

The series will air sometime later this year.
