(WFAA) — DALLAS — A fetus was found Friday in a bathroom at Woodrow Wilson High School.

“Obviously, this is very serious. It’s very troubling,” said DISD spokesman Jon Dahlander. “But we will work through this as a school district and a school community.”

The Dallas Independent School District said a maintenance worker found the fetus after being alerted by students. The second floor of the school, where the bathroom is located, was closed down around 2:30 p.m., students say.

Students were not notified during the school day and the district says it is now working to notify all students and their parents.
