Cleaning crews discover dead fetus in plane at LGA

American Airlines aircrafts are seen at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport in Grapevine Texas. American Airlines says it will stop using plastic straws and drink stirs and replace them with biodegradable alte

The incident reportedly occurred on American Airlines flight 1942, which departed Charlotte, North Carolina, Monday night and arrived a couple of hours later in NY. The flight, AA-1942, left the Queen City just before 9 p.m. and arrived at LaGuardia's Terminal B at 10:44 p.m. It was the Airbus A321's only flight of the day. An autopsy is being performed on the fetus to determine cause of death.

LGA tweeted about a delay due to the incident.

The New York City Medical Examiner and the Queen's District Attorney Office told the New York Post they are assisting in the investigation. The plane was later moved to an American Airlines hangar.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle leave St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle after their wedding in Windsor, May 19, 2018. The man turned 74 years old a couple of weeks ago, and the royal family was completely silent amid their feud.

The plane is out of service as the investigation continues. While Port Authority Police have major crimes detectives, a spokesman said "the DA also has investigators that step in in cases like this one".

The cleaning crew immediately contacted their manager, who in turn contacted law enforcement, Franco said.

The flight is scheduled to depart from Charlotte-Douglas International Airport again Tuesday evening, August 7 en route to LaGuardia.
