07 August 2018

According to CBS News, a cleaning crew found the fetus around 6 a.m.in the plane's bathroom. The gruesome discovery wasn't made until early on Tuesday morning, when the out-of-service jet was parked inside an airport hangar, according to law enforcement officials.

NY reported the plane, flight number 1942, departed Charlotte, NC on Monday night and arrived at LaGuardia late Monday night.

Fetus was thought to be 5 months along.

In a statement to WNBC, American said, "We have no major impact to our operation this morning while we are working with law enforcement on an investigation".

Aja Worthy-Davis, a spokesperson for New York City's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner told USA TODAY the department is "investigating what we believe to be a human fetus found deceased on an airplane".

They instead turned all questions over to the Queens District Attorney's Office which is yet to make a statement.

The account later tweeted to a frustrated customer that planes may be delayed "due to the medical needs of a customer".
