BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Officials in Louisiana say a fetus found by sewage workers was a stillborn male.

East Baton Rouge Coroner Beau Clark determined Monday that the fetus found Saturday was a stillborn male. Clark says the fetus weighed 268 grams (9.45 ounces) and had an estimated gestational age of 20 weeks. Officials say evidence showed that the fetus’ lungs were never used.

East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s spokeswoman Casey Rayborn Hicks tells news outlets the coroner’s examination is consistent with a miscarriage. Hicks says they will not pursue charges in the case.
