Fetus was discovered by a cleaning crew Tuesday morning.

Flight Tracker reports Flight 1942 left Charlotte at 8:56 p.m. Monday and arrived at LaGuardia at 10:44 p.m., about 20 minutes behind schedule. The gruesome discovery wasn't made until early on Tuesday morning, when the out-of-service jet was parked inside an airport hangar, according to law enforcement officials.

WNBC New York reported that a cleaning crew found the five- or six-month-old foetus in the toilet of one of the aeroplane's bathrooms.

"The OCME can confirm we're investigating what we believe to be a human fetus found deceased on an airplane", the agency said. "Please contact law enforcement for additional information". "We will release cause and manner of death upon determination", a spokesperson with the medical examiner's office said.

Meanwhile, a delegation of Hamas leaders living overseas is visiting Gaza to hold a meeting with Hamas leaders in the Strip. It said a tank fired at a Hamas military post in Gaza after Palestinians briefly crossed the frontier and threw bombs.

The Queens district attorney's office is investigating.

LaGuardia Airport tweeted "American Airlines flights at Terminal B may experience some delays to an out of service aircraft".

"They didn't tell us anything until we were already waiting at the gate", she griped.
