Don't forget, you were once a former FETUS!

Fetus found in Rialto sewer plant

RIALTO, Calif. - A male fetus was found lodged in the filtering system of the city's wastewater treatment plant.

Tuesday morning's discovery led to the plant's closure and police were called. Authorities initially considered the discovery a homicide but a coroner's pathologist later determined the fetus was so small that it could not have survived outside the womb, police said.

"At this point, with the pathologist's determination, we are no longer considering this a criminal offense," said police Detective Kurt Kitterle.

Authorities believe the fetus was flushed into the sewage system because it was found in a bin that holds solid waste, Kitterle said. Most of the sewage that flows into the plant comes from Rialto, with small amounts generated in the nearby cities of Fontana and Bloomington, police said.

No autopsy is planned, Kitterle said.
