Mother of dead newborn found on aeroplane identified
An 18-year-old woman has been identified as the mother of the premature baby that was found in the bathroom of an American Airlines plane at LaGuardia Airport on Tuesday.
Reports are that the woman, who was returning from a trip to Jamaica, rushed to the bathroom as the passengers departed flight 1942, which arrived at Charlotte, North Carolina, at about 10:30 p.m. on Monday.
The WEEKEND STAR understands that the baby was found in the toilet by the cleaning crew covered with paper.
It was reported that the woman visited a doctor when she came to Jamaica but it was not clear whether or not she came here to have an abortion.
She has not been charged with any offence; however, an autopsy is being done to determine if the baby was born alive.
Officials have stated that the investigation will remain open until the autopsy results come in.
