Principal Marty Makar of Osborn Middle School in Phoenix, Ariz. knew something was wrong when he heard screaming from a trash can on school property. As he investigated further, he found a newborn with an umbilical cord still attached. A 14-year-old mother and student at the school had gone to the nurse earlier in the day complaining about stomach pains, but the nurse didn’t realize she was pregnant. The baby was taken to the hospital in excellent shape and was placed in custody with state Child Protective Services.
