A pair of lungs found on the beach Wednesday morning is being tested to learn whether they’re human, authorities said.
The early consensus, however, is that the left and right lungs aren’t human remains, Jamaica Beach police Chief Andy McLane said.
A spring break vacationer found the lungs near one another on the sand shortly before noon in the 16800 block of the FM 3005. The lungs apparently washed ashore from the Gulf of Mexico.
Yuck! I’m not certain how this could happen unless the parts were segregated and then dumped offshore. I suppose lungs would float. But I’d like to hear an explanation for this.
UPDATE: Suspected to be from a dolphin.
