GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Greenville police are looking for a woman they say gave birth to a baby boy in an arena bathroom and left the child in a toilet.
Greenville police Sgt. Jason Rampey said the baby is white and was found about 11:30 p.m. Friday by a worker at the Bi-Lo Center. Rampey says evidence in the women's bathroom indicated the baby was born there.
Rampey said the child was no more than a couple of hours old when he was found and was suffering from hypothermia. The baby was in critical condition at Greenville Memorial Hospital.
The arena had been filled earlier in the evening with thousands of people attending the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Police are asking anyone who might know the mother to call 864-467-5333.
