'Lungs' Found on Los Angeles Street
Do you know where your lungs are?   (?Aidan Jones)

Somebody apparently left their lungs on a southern California street, and local cops are trying to find the owner. The "lung-like" organs were discovered on an avenue in South LA, reports AP. The passerby who spotted the items immediately called police. The county coroner is conducting tests to determine if they are, indeed, lungs, and if they're animal or human. “They looked like internal organs," a detective told ABC. "They’d been sitting out there all day long." (Read more Southern California stories.)
