A dead fetus was found on an American Airlines jet that landed at New York’ LaGuardia Airport from Charlotte on Monday.
The New York officials are investigating and the city’s Office of Chief Medical Examiner stated that the OCME can confirm their investigation on what they believe it to be a human fetus found deceased on an airplane.
The determination will be made public once the investigation is over.
It was reported that on Monday American Airlines Flight 1942, an Airbus A321 landed at 10:42 pm and it departed Charlotte, North Carolina after one hour and 36 minutes. On Tuesday morning the fetus was discovered in one of the airplane’s lavatories by the cleaning crew.
The American Airlines failed to confirm that any of its passengers had booked an infant-in-arms ticket that allows travelling with a baby, or gave birth on the plane.
American Airlines spokesman Matthew Miller said that they were actively cooperating with law enforcement in its investigation as they kept on continuously learning more about the sensitive situation.
On Tuesday morning the plane has been taken out of service and La Guardia warned of delays.
There were no immediate response from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey which oversees the airport.
