McDonald’s Worker Charged With Trying To Kill Newborn In Toilet

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California prosecutors said Wednesday that a fast-food restaurant cashier gave birth to a baby girl while at work and then tried to kill her by flushing her down a toilet.

The San Mateo County district attorney said Sarah Lockner, 25, has been charged with attempted murder after the newborn survived.

Prosecutors say Lockner went to work the night of Sept. 4 at a Redwood City McDonald’s complaining of stomach pains and visited the bathroom numerous times, raising concerns of co-workers.

A co-worker discovered a large amount of blood on the bathroom floor and peered over the stall to check on Lockner.

The co-worker told investigators she saw a baby face down in the toilet bowl and Lockner pushing on her back while flushing the toilet.

The co-worker called 911 and when paramedics and police arrived the baby was in Lockner’s arms, but the newborn wasn’t breathing and didn’t have a pulse.

Police arrested Lockner and paramedics revived the baby, who district attorney Steve Wagstaffe said is in stable condition, but it’s unknown whether the baby suffered brain damage.

Wagstaffe said Lockner told investigators that she didn’t know she was pregnant.

Lockner remain in jail on $11 million bail and will be appointed a public defender on Sept. 18.

  1. Just drop the baby off at a fire station.
    Taxpayers will care of the baby from then on, no questions asked. That’s state law.

    Even if you go to the hospital and you’re worried about the medical bills, DONT WORRY.
    Just tell them you’re low-income.
    The hospital will sign the child up for “Presumptive Medi-Cal” to get the taxpayers to pay for all of the delivery and care. That’s how the illegal aliens do it.
    P.E. Medi-Cal can be used by illegals and citizens. The state will later send you paperwork on how to stay on Medi-Cal, but the baby delivery and care will be paid for by government. You can just get on the P.E. Medi-Cal, have your baby, then simply ignore the later paperwork. You’ll leave Medi-Cal, but you won’t be billed for the delivery.

    After you leave the hospital, and you still don’t want the baby, dump it at a fire station.
