Dead fetus reportedly found on plane at LaGuardia Airport

There were no reported incidents on the plane Monday night.

Staff made the grim discovery on an American Airlines jet at New York's LaGuardia Airport on Tuesday morning.

Sources said American Airlines flight 1942 arrived to Terminal B from Charlotte, N.C. Monday at 10:44 p.m. While removing the toilet paper, the cleaner discovered the foot of what appeared to be a fetus, in the toilet, CBS News reports.

Minutes before 9 a.m., the airport tweeted that flights at Terminal B could be delayed "due to an out of service aircraft".

Fetus was thought to be 5 months along.

The plane was later pictured being moved to a hanger as law enforcement began investigating the find.

The New York City Medical Examiner's Office sent out a statement Tuesday confirming that it is "investigating what we believe to be a human fetus found deceased on an airplane".

But a spokesman for the airline said, "We have no major impact to our operation this morning while we are working with law enforcement on an investigation".
