A cleaning crew found a dead fetus on a plane in a hangar at LaGuardia Airport in New York Tuesday, according to a report from WNBC.

A cleaning crew discovered the fetus in the bathroom of a flight that arrived in NY from Charlotte, N.C., late Monday night, PIX11 reports.

The fetus was between three to six months along.

NY reported the plane, flight number 1942, departed Charlotte, NC on Monday night and arrived at LaGuardia late Monday night. It was the Airbus A321's only flight of the day. "The OCME can confirm we're investigating what we believe to be a human fetus found deceased on an airplane. We will release cause and manner of death upon determination", a spokesperson with the medical examiner's office said.


American Airlines said it would not impact the rest of their fleet.

The Queens County District Attorney is looking into the matter.

Airport officials this morning tweeted about possible delays, but did not make mention of the reason. Officials said a short time later that the flight was delayed until 4 p.m.
