A dead baby was found on an American Airlines flight at LaGuardia Airport Tuesday morning.

The airport’s cleaning crew found the dead baby in the airplane’s bathroom Tuesday morning during a routine cleaning while the plane sat in a hangar at LaGuardia airport in New York, NBC New York reported.

The cleaning crew discovered the baby around 7:30 a.m on the American Airlines plane sitting in Hangar 5, according to The New York Post.

LaGuardia Airport tweeted Tuesday morning about possible delays due to the out of service airplane.

The gruesome discovery comes after the plane landed in New York Monday night on its way from Charlotte, North Carolina. (RELATED: Hospital Fires Doctors After ‘Dead’ Baby Wakes Up En Route To The Funeral)

“We are working with law enforcement on an investigation,” an airline spokesman said, The New York Post reported.

The age of the fetus and details about whether the baby was aborted in utero, a result of miscarriage, or died after suffering some other complication have not been reported.

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information becomes public.
