What police believe to be the remains of a five to six-month-old fetus, was found in a plastic bag outside of an apartment building in New Brighton Wednesday.

The white plastic bag was found in a dumpster along the driveway of 147 Lafayette Avenue, sometime after 2 p.m.

According to reports, a 16-year-old girl who lives in the home was taken to the hospital earlier today. Officials determined that the teen was pregnant or had miscarried the baby, sources told the Staten Island Advance.

The Medical Examiner's office has been called to the scene.

Police detectives are investigating.
