  • Dead fetus found in airplane bathroom in New York

The fetus was found on board an American Airlines flight Tuesday morning. One of the attendants noticed a large amount of toilet paper in one of the plane's lavatory toilets.

The plane was temporarily taken out of service while a forensic team from the New York City Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) spent several hours onboard.

The cleaning crew quickly alerted their manager after their findings at 5 AM this morning where the authorities were called to properly deal with the matter. It's estimated that the fetus was between five and six months old.

Like the airline, LaGuardia Airport addressed the incident but without mentioning the fetus.
