A McDonald's cashier is facing an attempted murder charge after giving birth to a boy while at work and then trying to flush the newborn down a toilet inside the Redwood City restaurant, prosecutors said.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Sarah Lockner, 25, was working the night shift on September 4 when she complained of stomach pain and repeatedly used the restroom. Lockner made multiple trips to the bathroom citing the reason.
A concerned co-worker discovered a large amount of blood on the bathroom floor and peered over the stall to check on Lockner. Lockner had told the woman she was having a heavy menstrual cycle, Daily Post reported. Another female employee checked on her shortly after that, peeking over the closed door of the stall to find her holding a newborn baby to the toilet, according to prosecutors.
The baby boy was held by Lockner face-down in the toilet and was pressed into the water in the pot, Wagstaffe said.
Lockwood allegedly asked her not to call the police.
She then claims to have heard the toilet flush when she ran to get help.
