NEW YORK - Police officers responding to a 911 call found a decomposed human body under the boardwalk in Coney Island late Monday night.
An EMS crew confirmed the person was dead and brought the remains to the city's medical examiner for an autopsy, authorities said.
The body was too decomposed to immediately determine the person's sex or approximate age, a police spokesperson said.
Detectives from the 60th Precinct are investigating.
Some homeless people made the disturbing discovery at about 11:25 p.m. and contacted police, amNY.com reported.
