Young Mom Flushes Baby in Kansas City
KANSAS CITY (AP) - A newborn baby boy in Kansas City is in critical, but stable, condition Wednesday after he was nearly put to death by his mother. To call it disturbing is an understatement. Investigators say an employee at McDonalds gave birth to a baby boy in the restroom at work on Tuesday and then tried to flush him down the toilet multiple times before paramedics intervened. The baby, who appears to be full term, was not breathing and was face down in the water until paramedics revived him with cpr. The infant's 20-year-old mother told police she didn't even know she was pregnant. She indicated her last menstrual cycle was in january or february. Police are still investigating the case.
