SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - California prosecutors say a fast-food restaurant cashier gave birth to a baby girl while at work and then tried to kill her by flushing her down a toilet. The San Mateo County district attorney said Wednesday that 25-year-old Sarah Lockner has been charged with attempted murder after the child survived. Prosecutors say Lockner went to work Sept. 4 at a Redwood City McDonald's complaining of stomach pains and visited the bathroom numerous times. A concerned co-worker discovered a large amount of blood on the bathroom floor and peered over the stall to check on Lockner. The co-worker told investigators she saw a baby face down in the toilet bowl and Lockner pushing on her back while flushing the toilet. Police arrested Lockner, who will be appointed a public defender on Sept. 18. __ (Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
