A possible human organ was spotted floating in a wastewater plant in Detroit. What’s even more concerning is that this is the third discovery of a possible human organ in less than a week.
The object was discovered just before 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Water Resource Recovery Facility, leaving authorities baffled. They said the mysterious object appeared to be an organ, but have not determined if it is from an animal or human.
The Water Resource Recovery Facility, previously known as the Wastewater Treatment Plant, is the largest single-site wastewater treatment facility in the United States.
Two organs, both thought to be kidneys, were found at the plant in separate incidents on Friday and Saturday. According to Detroit Police Capt. Darin Szilagy, the medical examiner will inspect the organs to determine their type and origin.
“I know in the…past weeks we’ve had some other incidents. There is an investigation into it right now. The results are still not back from the medical examiner for the origin of the recovered organs in the past week, so it’s an ongoing investigation,” Szilagy told FOX2.
The mysterious objects sparked concern about the water treatment. However, a spokeswoman for the Great Lakes Water Authority claims it doesn’t affect the process because the suspected organs were found in the pre-treatment filtering process of the water.
