Authorities are investigating after workers found what appeared to be a human skull inside a black garbage bag in a New York City park Thursday.
Workers were cleaning Peters Field Park near 183rd Place and Henderson Avenue in Hillside, Queens when they found the bag near a fence bordering the Long Island Rail Road tracks.
A neighbor who lives next to the park said he was alerted to the grisly find when he hard the surprised workers shouting.
"There was a commotion," said Cumar Richardson, who brings his son to the playground.
The medical examiner's office will determine if the skull is actually human. Police are investigating.
