KC Woman Tries to Flush Newborn at Mc Donalds

"And I think to my self, what a wonderful world,"

A baby born in a toilet at a McDonald’s suffered no injuries from the water or the mother’s reported attempts to flush the toilet, police said Tuesday.

The premature baby, who was born at an estimated 32 weeks of gestation, was in stable condition at a hospital Tuesday. Kansas City police said they expected the infant to survive.

Police continued Tuesday to investigate the circumstances of his birth about 12:30 p.m. Monday inside the restaurant at 3741 Broadway. No charges had been filed Tuesday against the 20-year-old mother, a McDonald’s employee.

Co-workers and police gave this account:

While working in the drive-through area, the woman appeared to be in pain and said she needed to use the restroom. When she had not returned in 15 minutes, another employee checked on her and asked what was wrong.

“You don’t even want to know,” the woman reportedly responded from behind a closed stall door. Later, she said that she was bleeding and opened the bathroom stall door to show the co-worker.

The co-worker thought the woman was suffering a miscarriage and told a manager to call 911.

Paramedics responded to the call and talked to the woman, who still was on the toilet. She reportedly told them she had “flushed three times but that it would not go down.”
