An 18-year-old girl was identified as the mother of the premature newborn who was found dead inside an airplane toilet at LaGuardia Airport.


She was returning with her sister from a trip to Jamaica and could have gone through a 'botched abortion' in the Caribbean nation, as reported by the New York Daily News on Wednesday.

The teen, who registered with Kings County Hospital after she got off the plane, asserted that she didn't know she was pregnant.

She hurried into the restroom of an American Airlines plane after it arrived at the Queens airport around 10:45 pm on Monday.

A law enforcement official said that she hauled the baby out, placed it in the toilet and covered it with paper.


The lady told the officials that she wasn't feeling well for a considerable length of time but showed little emotion. The source claimed that the interaction was like conversing with a stone wall.

Specialists who examined the young lady at Kings County Hospital said the baby's demise could be the consequence of an abortion that went wrong.

The adolescent told the police that she had visited a doctor in Jamaica before flying back to the US.

A cleaning team for Airway Cleaners found the infant's body in a center restroom of the plane, which was stopped outside at American Airlines airplane shed around 6 am on Tuesday.


The baby seemed to have been born three months premature.

No charges have been filed as of yet against the young lady as the police await the autopsy report, which will prove whether the baby was born dead or alive before being abandoned.

After the baby was discovered, the flight crew informed the authorities about the sick passenger, who was recognized by her seat assignment.

The investigation will stay open until the post-mortem results are concluded.
