On Sunday, police officers drove to the residence of Heather Richard, a 32-year-old Winnipeg woman, in order to arrest her for robbery.
But the officers found the woman in a bathroom covered with blood, just a few seconds after she had given birth. One of the officers discovered a lifeless baby inside the toilet bowl and was able to reanimate it.
Richard, not knowing she was pregnant, had gone to the toilet because of stomach pains. She thought she had given birth to her intestines and was scared.
The baby suffered a cranial frature and is now in stable condition in the hospital.
