A flight scheduled to travel from Durban to Johannesburg was delayed after a foetus was discovered  aboard at King Shaka International airport in Durban on Friday morning.

According to Flysafair, the technical crew discovered an abandoned foetus on the aircraft upon doing final preparations for the departure of the flight.

Passengers were then asked to disembark the plane as the relevant authorities were being alerted to initiate investigations.

“Beyond this we are unable to comment on any specifics relating to the finding which is now a police matter. The South African Police Service would be better poised to provide any further information,” the statement read.

Kirby Gordon, Head of Sales and Distribution at FlySafair, said that the airline would be aiding the authorities in their investigations and would be thanking their customers for their loyalty.

“We will be doing everything within our power to aid authorities in the necessary investigations and thank our loyal customers for their patience with the resultant delay.”
