A cleaning crew found a dead fetus in the bathroom of an American Airlines plane early Tuesday morning, sources tell PIX11. The plane was parked inside a hangar at the airport when crews made the discovery.

American Airlines Flight 1942, which left Charlotte, North Carolina, at 8:56 p.m. on Monday night, arrived at the Queens, New York, hub at 10:44 p.m.

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". "We will release cause and manner of death upon determination." .




American Airlines also sent out an official statement, but offered no details about what had been found.

Airport officials this morning tweeted about possible delays, but did not make mention of the reason. "Please contact law enforcement for additional information", an American Airlines spokesman said.

The Port Authority deferred questions to the Queens DA's Office, which said it was looking into the matter.
