A FEMALE fetus was found in a garbage can in one of the women’s restrooms inside Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said Friday.
It said the fetus, which is about six months old, was discovered by Elvira Dejon, a cleaner assigned at the terminal’s CR-303 located in the Departure Area near Boarding Gate 118.
A MIAA medical team who rushed to the scene said the fetus, which they identified as a female, was placed on top of the restroom’s garbage can and was still fresh when they saw it.
Jesus Descanzo, MIAA assistant general manager for Security and Emergency Services, said the mother might have suffered from “miscarriage” while waiting for her flight either for Dumaguete City or Roxas City at 9:26 a.m.
He added that the Pasay City police are now investigating the case, especially the identity of the mother. BENJIE L. VERGARA
