RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- An item found at Samuel Myers Park in Racine has authorities investigating whether or not it is a brain. 

Racine police were called to the area, 1 11th Street in Racine, Tuesday morning, Sept. 14. 

A man was on the beach hunting for "beach glass" when he came across a bag with the brain inside. He said it was in aluminum foil, and wrapped in a flower and some foreign money. He said it seemed real to him, but whether it's real or not, he's just glad he was the one that found it. 

"I'm personally glad I'm the one that found it instead of somebody else," said James Senda, who found the possible brain. "There's kids that play here. I mean, I mentally can take it, I can handle it. But who knows some people may not be able to handle it like I did." 

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's office will test the brain to see if it's real, and if so, if it is human.
