A Colorado woman files a lawsuit after it happened to her in prison

Diana Sanchez was left to give birth to her son alone in a jail cell, according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday in U.S District Court in Colorado.




A Colorado woman was left alone in a cell while giving birth and jail deputies and nurses failed to provide adequate care, according to a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday in U.S District Court in Colorado. 

The lawsuit calls the day Diana Sanchez gave birth to her son "a day of unnecessary terror, pain, and humiliation that continues to cause her ongoing emotional trauma." 

A surveillance video from the Denver County Jail provided by Sanchez's lawyer, Mari Newman, shows Sanchez lying on a cell bed, crying out alone in a jail cell before she pulls off her underwear and gives birth to her son.



The lawsuit states Sanchez was "screaming in pain" and that a deputy was sent to get a nurse, but that nurse allegedly told the deputy "not to bother him until he was off the phone." 

There is no one else in the cell when Sanchez's baby is delivered — someone briefly enters the frame prior to the boy's birth and then exits. Sanchez's baby is tended to after he is born. The lawsuit states a deputy "could see the baby was crowning" and that deputy called for a nurse.
