A STATEN Island resident made a grim find on Friday after he discovered his dead neighbor’s body crammed feet-first into a garbage chute with her head sticking out.

Firefighters and cops found the corpse of Lisa Maria Hernandez at around 2:25pm in a chute near the third floor of the Silver Lake Apartments in New York City.

The 34-year-old Staten Islander was a resident of the building at 937 Victory Blvd, according to the Daily News.

A third-floor resident who spoke with the newspaper said he learned of the harrowing discovery from his neighbor.

That’s when he said he went to check out the garbage chute about 20 feet from his door, where he found Hernandez fully clothed with bruises on her face.

“I said, ‘Listen, you’ve got to call the cops on this one. This is a dead woman,’” said the resident, who asked to remain anonymous.

“Her head was sticking out, and her arms were sticking out. It’s very vivid.”

Firefighters removed Hernandez’s body from the chute and medics rushed her to Richmond Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

“I’ve been in this building for 20 years now, and never ever ever seen this,” the man said.

“The floor that I live on in the whole entire complex is probably the most quiet floor, so that’s why we’re shocked. Everybody here is shocked.”

NYPD officers spoke to residents on Friday in hopes of finding information that will help them determine how she ended up crammed in a trash chute and whether she was a victim of foul play.

Police were showing a photo of Hernandez to building residents, one neighbor told the Daily News.

An NYPD spokesperson said the events surrounding her death are now under investigation.
