Bay Area McDonald's Employee Tries to Flush Baby Down the Toilet Prosecutors Say

Redwood City Police Department

- A 25-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly trying to flush her newborn baby down the toilet.

Lockner, 25, was working a night shift at a Redwood City, California McDonald's on Monday, September 4, when she started complaining of stomach pains. Lockner allegedly told her co-worker she was just having a heavy period, but prosecutors say she was actually giving birth. The co-worker claimed that Lockner then flushed the toilet and asked the witness not to report the incident. "She said do not call the police", said Wagstaffe.

When police arrived, they found the baby in Lockner's arms, but the newborn was not breathing and had no pulse.

The newborn was taken to a hospital, where she was placed in a medically induced coma, authorities said.

"Her boyfriend said he did not know she was pregnant either, and none of her co-workers knew", chief deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti said.

He said weapons and warlike store were recovered from the encounter site. Two militants killed", a Srinagar-based army spokesperson said.

Lockner has been jailed on $11 million bail and has also been charged with one account of assault on a child becoming paralyzed. The baby survived, but the long-term effects of the trauma are not yet known. The baby is now surviving on its own.

He added: "It's hard enough to have a baby in a stall at a McDonald's but then want to end his life". The baby is in stable condition, but it's unknown if it has any brain damage.

Her supervisor told her she could clock out early around 10 p.m., but Lockner did not leave the fast food restaurant after clocking out.

When two female employees went into the restroom to check on her, they found her inside a stall with pools of blood surrounding her. She's always walking around with her baby going around to the park.

Her defense attorney Jonathan McDougall with San Mateo County's Private Defender Program could not immediately be reached for comment.
