Uprooted tree unearths casket in Largo cemetery

- Hurricane Irma took trees down across the Bay Area – uprooting sidewalks, lawns, and even some falling on homes.

One massive tree toppled over at Chapel Hill Memorial Park in Largo.

But if you look closely, more than roots and earth were brought above ground.

Photos sent to FOX 13 by Keada Hector shows what appears to be a casket tangled in the tree's roots.

It wasn’t immediately known whose remains may have been unearthed by the fallen tree.

The non-profit cemetery has been in operation since 1968.

Hector said at least five large trees in the cemetery had been uprooted.
