Newborn In Critical Condition After Bathroom Birth

Last updated on Tuesday, October 12, 2010

(COLUMBUS, IN) - A newborn baby was listed in critical condition at last check, after her 15-year-old mother gave birth in a bathroom.

Columbus police say the girl yelled for help after delivering the baby.

Her father came in and cut the umbilical cord, wrapped the baby in a towel and called 911.

Medics along with a Columbus Police officer performed "life-saving" efforts after arriving on the scene.

Police say they do not have any idea how far along the girl was or if she tried to hide the pregnancy.
