    A child-sized coffin turned up in the middle of a North Philadelphia street with the organs of a small child or infant inside.

    The grisly discovery was made around 9:15 p.m. Monday along Clearfield Avenue near N 30th Street, Philadelphia police said.

    When officers opened the coffin they found a medical bag with what appeared to be organs inside. The medical examiner later confirmed that there were human organs, police said.

    Investigators believe the painted white coffin was built for a child around 1 years old. They weren’t certain if the coffin was ever buried.
