Law enforcement officials told WNBC the discovery was made in a bathroom of an American Airlines plane that landed at the Queens hub after leaving Charlotte Monday night. While removing the toilet paper, the cleaner discovered the foot of what appeared to be a fetus, in the toilet, CBS News reports.
The fetus was between three to six months along.
The plane was later pictured being moved to a hanger as law enforcement began investigating the find.
