Was it an organ found in a St. Petersburg canal?

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - Authorities aren't sure what they found in a St. Petersburg canal, but one biologist told them it appears to be a lung.

The medical examiner's office has the object and was conducting tests Monday to determine what it really is.

St. Petersburg police say a biologist found the object floating in a canal behind his home Sunday afternoon and contacted authorities. The biologist told officers, he believes, it's a lung; although, he could not say if it was that of a human or animal.

No further information has been released.
