UPDATE: Investigation Of Care After Teen Miscarries At School

A New Mexico teenager says she had a miscarriage in a high school hallway and that a teacher didn't help her because she was late to class.

But school officials say the student actually had a miscarriage a week before and had passed her placenta that day.

KOAT-TV reports that the Grants High School student says she miscarried outside a band class last week. The teen says after the teacher refused to let her in the class she then made her way to a bathroom and passed out.

The teen, who was three months pregnant, says she sent a text message to a friend who came to her rescue.

Superintendent Kilino Marquez told The Associated Press that the student was given permission to see a nurse before the band class but then disappeared for 20 minutes.
