A fetus was found by community members at the Phoenix taxi rank in the Durban CBD on Tuesday.

Emer-G-Med said paramedics were flagged down by members of the public in the Warwick Avenue area, after a commuter made a grisly discovery while waiting for his taxi at the taxi rank.

Paramedics were taken to a bin where they were shown a fetus wrapped in a rubbish bag and discarded in the bin.

Emer-G-Med said the scene was cordoned off and handed over to the SAPS who will be conducting the necessary investigations accordingly.
