Police are investigating after finding a fetus under a tree in Brooklyn Monday morning, according to the NYPD.

Officers responded to a 911 call from a woman who found the fetus under a tree at the corner of Linden Boulevard and Bradford Avenue in East New York at about 7 a.m., police said.

The intersection is just steps from P.S. 36 and across from Linden Park. New York City public schools are closed this week for midwinter recess.

The fetus was about 20 weeks old, they said.

The investigation is ongoing, according to the NYPD.
