17-year-old Xochitl Parra gave birth to a baby boy at home, unbeknownst to her mother, and then walked four blocks to the hospital with the umbilical cord still attached. Parra is a sophomore at Long Beach Poly High in Long Beach, CA, and was afraid that her mother would disown her if she knew that Xochitl was up the stick. Good news all around though: Xochitl's baby, Alejandro, is a healthy little dude and her mom is going to help her care for him so that she can keep going to school. [CNN]
