Fast-food employee flushes newborn down toilet after giving birth at restaurant

A McDonald's cashier is accused of giving birth to a baby boy while at work and attempting to drown the newborn in a toilet.

Prosecutors say Lockner went to work September 4 at a Redwood City McDonald's complaining of stomach pains and visited the bathroom numerous times.

Investigators said Sarah Lockner, 25, was working an evening shift last Thursday at a Redwood City McDonald's when she started complaining of stomach pains and kept going back and forth to the bathroom, according to the Daily Journal.

But Lockner's behavior had drawn the attention of a second co-worker, who also chose to check on her. At around 10 p.m., her manager suggested she go home but, even after clocking out of her shift, Lockner allegedly stayed at the restaurant in the restroom, according to prosecutors.

The second employee walked into the bathroom, peered over Lockner's stall and "saw a newborn baby face down in toilet bowl", prosecutors said.

Just after the employee stepped down to get help, she heard the toilet flush and Lockner asking her not to call police.

Police arrived later to find the baby in Lockner's arms, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe told the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday. It wasn't breathing and didn't have a pulse, but is expected to survive. The baby was rushed to the hospital and placed in a medically induced coma.

According to prosecutors, Lockner said she did not know she was pregnant.

The infant is alive and in stable condition, but the extent of the baby's brain injuries was not known, Wagstaffe said.

She appeared in court Monday on charges of attempted murder.

Lockner has been jailed on $11 million bail and has also been charged with one account of assault on a child becoming paralyzed.
