Fetus discovered by crew on plane from Charlotte to NY, sources say

After the flight arrived from Charlotte and passengers deplaned Monday night, the cleaning crew made the discovery in the bathroom Tuesday morning. While removing the toilet paper, the cleaner discovered the foot of what appeared to be a fetus, in the toilet, CBS News reports.

The plane is out of service as the investigation continues.

NY reported the plane, flight number 1942, departed Charlotte, NC on Monday night and arrived at LaGuardia late Monday night. An autopsy is being performed on the fetus to determine cause of death.

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".

Details will not be released until after the investigation is complete, the statement said.
