As the day went on, and the Jeep remained firmly in place, people began posting videos of it online, including one of a bagpipe player performing "Amazing Grace."
The owner did not realize the extent of the damage to the Jeep until later in the day when police called.
"(My cousin) avoided me for a good hour or two because he didn't know what to say and then police actually came to the house," the owner told WMBF. "And they said, 'Hey we found your Jeep on the beach.' Then I called him and spoke to him and he told me exactly what happened."
Myrtle Beach police said the vehicle was removed Friday morning.
