A 37-year-old woman who was seven months pregnant spent an entire 24 hour period smoking crack cocaine in an Ocala, Florida motel room, triggering the birth process and leading to the woman delivering her own baby alone in a bathtub. It gets even more unbelievable from there.
The woman, Chrystal Hassell, then proceeded to cut the umbilical cord with her teeth.
Despite the insanity of the situation, Hassell did not call 911. Instead, she called her boyfriend, who had stepped out with the couple’s 11-month-old son to run an errand.
Unfortunately, the boyfriend, Vincent Terry, was pulled over for speeding as he returned to the hotel. Also unfortunate for Terry? He’s currently wanted for murder in Colorado.
Hassell eventually called 911 two hours after the birth.
Hassell is being charged with child neglect. Terry is headed back to Colorado to face murder charges. The newborn is currently in critical condition.
