    This is beyond words.

    I wonder why Oskin was bleeding when she left home and why she went with the nutcase.

    Hooray for the 17-year-old rescuer! HE is the hero in the story.

    On the news here, it was reported that the 17-year-old went home after witnessing the event, told his dad, and then 2 HOURS later, called the police. It is wonderful that he told, but why wait so long? 2 hours is a long time and could of been the difference between life and death for this poor woman and her baby.

    I cannot comment on the time or chronology, but at LEAST THEY DID SOMETHING right?

    I agree... they did do something right. I am in no way discounting that. (Just wanted to clarify!)

    NTBJ - The guy, Adam Silvis, was on Good Morning America. He said he was on an ATV, went home, told his Dad, his Dad went back two minutes later as they called police.

    I might get a little flack from this post but I mean it from the heart. I feel that us as nurses have the right and authority to be nosey. We See things. We hear things. we are privy to information. Not that I am saying a nurse could have stopped this probably not. But lets preten (Attacher a) and victim b) were both pregnant. Normally they go to OB's where they see nurses. (Attacker A) miscarries. you know this but with hippa can't let anyone know. But you may or may see that she is still pretending to be pregnant. Seeing her by diapers and a bassinet at walmart. (do you feel comfortable enough to confront her about this. She may be buying them for someone else. I've learned crazy things happen. We had a "pregnant woman" come in for monitoring because she hadnt felt the baby move she came in with an ultrasound (hers???) sstating she had twins. We could never keep baby's always got moms. Finally we did another ultrasound and she wasn't even pregnant. Husband had sold the truck to by two bassinets 2 car seats, snd she wasn't even PG. She had 2 options. OK maybe 3 Come clean and tell the truth. Tell them the babies died she delivered and took them to the hospital and they can't get them back (Yes I belive I have recived a phone call like this) #3 steal a baby to continue the lie. Maybe someone had an inllking deep down inside. About 6 years ago before I started working with OB patients I had an aide who said she was pregnant with twins, she never got fat I belive she said that one died. She had them at a hospital where they wouldn't have delivered them that early and she went there for a waterbirth wich they didn't do at that time. She called in work from the hospital where she gave birth but when I called back 10 minutes later they had no record of her. Freaky. Had I known now back then I would have called her on it.
