Spokesperson, Kirby Gordon says the shocking discovery was made this morning while technicians were preparing their waste management system for the departure of a flight from King Shaka International Airport to Johannesburg.

"The team on the ground were busy draining the system. They immediately halted that process and alerted the authorities accordingly."

It is understood it took members of the SAPS and Durban Metro Search and Rescue Unit over an hour to remove the foetus.

Gordon says they will now leave the matter in the hands of the police.

"The aircraft becomes an element of a scene. The South African Police Service will take over the investigation from here. We are just focusing on the task at hand trying to make sure that we can do everything we can in order to be as respectful as we possibly can be and of course to assist the authorities."
