L.A. Lung Hoax Revealed.

Possible lungs found on LA County sidewalk

LOS ANGELES — Authorities say something that looks like lungs have been found on a sidewalk in south Los Angeles County.
Sheriff's Sgt. Robert Dean tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/LkBEdZ ) that a citizen called Sunday evening to report organs on the sidewalk on Avalon Boulevard in an unincorporated area.
He says he doesn't know what they are but deputies turned them over to coroner's officials.
Coroner's spokesman Ed Winter says a doctor has not looked at what was found yet. He says an examination will be conducted Monday or Tuesday.

The L.A. coroner's office asked anyone with missing lungs to contact the office.  The above are not photos of actual lungs but are anatomical drawings of lungs.

In a late breaking news story the LA County Coroner has determined that the item(s) first identified as possible lungs are not human and it is not known what body parts they are, if any.  So the drawing herein is incorrect and doesn't resemble any real human lungs.  Sorry.
