The Kern County Sheriff’s Office says a bag containing a human arm was found in the Kern River.
Lt. Henry Bravo tells The Bakersfield Californian several youths were swimming in the river east of Hart Park Sunday evening when they felt something unusual under them, grabbed the bag and looked inside.
Bravo says there were also other items inside the bag but those details are not being disclosed.
The decomposed arm will be subjected to DNA testing.
It’s the second human body part found submerged in Kern County this summer. A leg was found in Buena Vista Lake in late July.
