A dead fetus was found in the bathroom of an airplane in Manila. The plane had just landed in the Philippine capital and discovered by a worker.
The gruesome discovery comes months after a woman gave birth on another flight to Manila and dumped the live fetus in an airplane trash bag of the bathroom.
Manila aviation police investigator Marcelino Peninoy says a bathroom cleaner discovered the remains of the 5- to 6-month-old dead 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 an airplane claimed she was raped by her employer.
