Brooklyn teen identified as mother of dead baby found in airplane toilet; after trip to Jamaica.

An 18-year-old Brooklyn woman has been identified as the mother of the premature newborn found dead inside an airplane toilet at LaGuardia Airport. She was returning with her sister from a trip to Jamaica and could have been the victim of a “botched abortion” in the Caribbean, officials said Wednesday.

The teen, who checked into Kings County Hospital after she got off the plane, claimed she never knew she was pregnant when she rushed into the bathroom of an American Airlines plane after it landed at the Queens airport about 10:45 p.m. Monday.

“She pulled the baby out and put it in the toilet and covered it with paper,” a law enforcement source said.

The woman told investigators she hadn’t been feeling well for days but showed little emotion, the source said.
