LOS ANGELES - Authorities are investigating what appear to be a pair of lungs found on a sidewalk in South Los Angeles.

A woman called to report finding what she believed to be the organs at 8:30 p.m. (11:30 p.m. ET) Sunday in the 13100 block of Avalon Boulevard.

 Sheriff's deputies responded to the scene, and the coroner's office was also called.

Additional testing will determine if the remains are in fact lungs and whether they are human, police said.

Sgt. Robert Dean of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, told the Los Angeles Times: "We don't know what they are. It's really weird."

Ed Winter, spokesman for the Los Angeles County Coroner's office, told the newspaper the possible organs were not attached to a body, and he found the situation "a little strange." He said it was unclear when the examination would be performed.
