Lockhart said the woman was 32-weeks pregnant when she gave birth in the restroom. She allegedly told paramedics that she tried to flush the baby down the toilet several times, he said.
The child was still in the toilet and wasn't breathing when paramedics arrived, he said. They administered CPR on the child to get him breathing again, Lockhart said.
The paramedics then rushed the baby and mother to the hospital. Police were notified about 2:30 p.m. Monday, Lockhart said.
"The mother told paramedics that she didn't know she was pregnant," he said.
The newborn has been placed in the temporary custody of children's services, Lockhart said. It was not clear whether the woman has other children, he said.
She must have been pretty out of it...flushing your baby down the toilet???
What the heck was she thinking?
