VIDEO: Bear cools off in pool as record heat sweeps Southern California

A bear cools off in a pool in Bradbury, California as record-setting heat swept through Southern California on Sunday, June 19, 2016.

Many in Southern California found ways to beat the record-setting heat that swept through the region over the weekend, and that wasn't just limited to humans.

ABC7 viewer Marilyn Di Filippo shared video of a bear taking a swim in her swimming pool in Bradbury on Sunday.

As scorching temperatures set in on Father's Day, red-flag and excessive heat warnings were in place for mountain areas in Ventura, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara counties.

Temperatures in the Palm Springs area reached nearly 120 degrees.

The heat is expected to linger in the region through Tuesday.
