A human leg was found “protruding” from a dumpster in Queens Wednesday, police said.
The NYPD was called to the TD Bank at 164th Street and Union Turnpike in Hillcrest around 6:30 p.m. after a witness discovered the mutilated remains.
The leg was sticking out from a giant red container in the bank’s parking lot, according to police.
Sources said the body part was found covered with maggots.

A spokesperson for TD Bank declined to comment.
