Workers at a laundromat were horrified to find dead fetuses in the laundry they received from a hospital, police in Nevada said.
Henderson Police said that the workers made the shocking discovery on Tuesday morning, finding two 16-week-old fetuses in a shipment of bedding.
Investigators determined that the twin fetuses arrived with the laundry of the Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center. At 16 weeks old, fetuses are about 4.5 inches long and have eyes and ears.
The hospital said that they took possession of the twin fetuses. According to the investigation, a woman arrived at the hospital with an ambulance after suffering from a miscarriage.
The twin dead fetuses were already wrapped in sheets and they somehow ended up in the laundry. The medical examiner will determine the cause of the death.
