Dead fetus found in airplane bathroom in Manila

By Associated Press

POSTED:



MANILA, Philippines — Police say a dead fetus has been found in the bathroom of a plane that arrived in the Philippine capital. The gruesome discovery comes months after a woman gave birth on another flight to Manila and dumped the live infant in an airplane trash bag.

Aviation police investigator Marcelino Peninoy says a cleaner discovered the remains of the 5- to 6-month-old male fetus Monday on the Etihad Airways aircraft after it arrived from Abu Dhabi.

The identity of the mother was unclear, though millions of Filipinos work abroad. Abortion is illegal in the Philippines and the mother could face charges if she terminated the pregnancy.

In September, a returning Filipino worker who abandoned her baby after giving birth on a plane claimed she was raped by her employer.
