Baby born at Hoggard High School


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A Hoggard High School student gave birth today on campus in one of the school's bathroom stalls. The baby was born around 3:30 p.m. right as school was letting out.

New Hanover County Schools spokeswoman Valita Quattlebaum says that the school nurse and staff acted heroically in getting medical attention to the student and newborn.

No word on whether the baby was a boy or girl.

Rather have her giving birth

Rather have her giving birth in the bathroom then doing something drastic to the baby. Everybody would be calling her the next Casey Anthony. Damn if you do damn if you don't

Will you relax already??

Maybe she didn't even know she was pregnant! She could have thought her bowels were acting up, in which case going into the bathroom would have made perfect sense! Though I do have to wonder if the school nurse and others were involved why did they not move the girl out of the bathroom and into somewhere more appropriate? Must have been a speedy delivery!!
