The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Teen has baby, helps it drown in toilet

A 14 year old girl has been charged in the death of her newborn baby after giving birth in a school bathroom and allowing the child to drown in a toilet.

But this doesn't seem to just be a case of the teenager giving birth and walking away, leaving the baby to die- especially given the condition of the infant.

Investigators said the 5-pound, 6-ounce boy died April 2 in a restroom at Cedar Bayou Junior School, located at 2600 Elvinta. The baby had toilet paper stuffed in his throat, and suffered blunt trauma to his head and neck, according to an autopsy

Officials said the baby boy was alive and was drowned in the toilet. The medical examiner said the newborn died of water submersion and internal airway obstruction
