The Oregon state medical examiner's office says that supposed human hand found on a beach at Gearhart last week was really the remains of a seal flipper.
Oregon State Police Lt. Gregg Hastings said the medical examiner's office looked at the decomposing item Tuesday.

An Astoria police detective took the item to the medical examiner's office in Clackamas.
