(Scroll down for video) Three people called police after receiving a photo, showing a woman lying in a bathtub and appearing to be dead.

The three family members called Ohio police separately after receiving the photos along with text messages from 29-year-old Micah Risner.

One message read: “Please help me! I really didn’t mean to. I don’t remember. We were arguing and I woke up to this.”

One family member replied: “Is she dead Micah? Answer me now.” To which he replied: “I woke up on the bathroom floor with blood on me and her like that. I’m trying to clean, but I don’t know if I should.”

Police rushed to the couple’s home in Sandusky, where they found Risner and his 25-year-old fiancee, Nataleigh Schlette, unharmed and their bathroom was already cleaned up.

Risner and Schlette told police that it was all a prank. They were both arrested on charges of inducing panic. Police said that the couple’s children were home at the time of the incident.
