Heartbreaking news coming out of New York…

Early Tuesday morning, workers discovered the dead body of a fetus in the toilet of an American Airlines plane at LaGuardia Airport.

Via NY Daily News:

The infant appeared to have been born about three months prematurely. The tiny body was found about 6 a.m. in a toilet on American Airlines flight 1942 out of Charlotte, N.C., sources said.

The Airbus A321 was just outside a hanger at the time of the discovery, the sources said. The plane had arrived at LaGuardia at 10:44 p.m. Monday.

“As we continue to learn more about this tragic and sensitive situation we are actively cooperating with law enforcement in its investigation,” the airline said in a statement.

Port Authority police and Queens prosecutors are investigating.

I certainly hope DNA evidence will be able to identify the mother of the deceased baby.

All signs point to some type of medical emergency, but how could you just abandon a newborn baby in a toilet?!

I will keep you posted on this story as more information becomes available.
