A dead fetus was found on a commercial plane at LaGuardia Airport on Tuesday morning, police sources told The Post.
The gruesome discovery was made around 7:30 a.m. aboard an out-of-service American Airlines flight at Hangar 5, the sources said.
A cleaning crew found the fetus in the bathroom of the plane, which had landed in New York on Monday night from Charlotte, North Carolina, according to a high-ranking police source.
The City Medical Examiner was on the way to investigate.
Just before 9 a.m., the airport tweeted about possible delays over the incident.
“American Airlines flights at Terminal B may experience some delays due to an out of service aircraft. Please check with @AmericanAir before your departure,” the post said.
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.”
The Port Authority deferred questions to the Queens DA’s Office, which said it was looking into the matter.
