A “high-ranking police source” told the outlet that cleaning employees discovered the baby on an American Airlines Airbus A321 plane, located in Hanger 5 at Terminal B. The plane’s last flight, 1942, landed Monday night at LaGuardia from Charlotte, North Carolina.
While an NYC Medical Examiner is investigating the cause of the baby’s death, American Airlines tweeted that Terminal B could experience delays Tuesday morning.
