This is absolutely crazy!! A woman who was arrested for identity theft while she was 8 months pregnant, went into labor and no one came to help her. According to her lawyer, who just released this surveillance footage, she was screaming for help for 6 HOURS while guards watched and never came to assist her. At one point the woman realizes the time is now to push and she delivers the baby on her own. It's only at that point, as the baby plops out on to the unsanitary bed, that a guard and RN walk into the cell.
The woman has filed a lawsuit against the city of Denver. [CBS News]
No one, regardless of the crime, should have to go through this alone.
