Lady Whose Baby Died After She Gave Birth to it in Jail Cell Toilet Files Lawsuit

A woman whose baby died after she gave birth to it in her jail cell toilet has slapped the Clayton County in Georgia with a negligence lawsuit, claiming jailers did not provide adequate medical care and ignored her pleas for help the night she gave birth. Deshawn Balka, 25, who was in jail on a probation violation for tampering with evidence and marijuana possession was five months pregnant when she gave birth to the baby boy in the toilet of her jail cell at the Clayton County jail in April. She tells WSB: "I wish and I pray that I would have gotten the care that I requested. It's wrong. All the way around. It’s completely wrong." Jailers arrived to her cell "five to 10 minutes" after the child was born. She's seeking more than $25,000 in damages. We don't pretend to be the smartest people around, but why didn't she take the baby out of the toilet when she realized she wasn't having a bowel movement but delivered a baby? Or is there a part of this story we don't know?
