TOBAY BEACH - Beachgoers were evacuated after apparent organ parts were discovered floating in the water at Tobay Beach today, but police now say the remains were not human.

A lifeguard spotted the organs floating in the water and called police shortly before 1 p.m. Police temporarily evacuated the beach, and the tissues were brought to the Nassau County Medical Examiner's Office for testing.

It was determined that the remains were not human, although police haven't said what they may have come from.

Tobay Beach has since been reopened.
