Fetus found at Georgia wastewater treatment plant

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Athens-Clarke County police say a utilities worker found a fetus at a wastewater treatment plant.

Police say the fetus was found on Monday in the waste bin of a machine that traps trash from sewers as the water arrives at the plant.

A police report says the employee was about to change the bin about noon when he noticed the fetus.

Police say they don't know where the fetus came from or how long it had been in the sewers. The say emergency workers estimate the development at 3 months.

Coroner Norman Wilson says there's no way to tell where the fetus came from because a large section of the city is serviced by the treatment plant.
