The plane was in a hangar and had arrived in NY from Charlotte, North Carolina, on Monday night.

The fetus was discovered by airline cleaning staff in a restroom aboard American Airlines Flight 1942 after it landed, the official told the Observer.

American Airlines has confirmed an investigation is underway, and released the following statement. That activity caused some brief delays pushing back other aircraft.

Port Authority Police declined to comment when contacted by DailyMail.com on Tuesday morning.
