June 21, 1989|From Times wire services

WASHINGTON — A 16-year-old Oklahoma girl gave birth today in the bathroom of a Senate office building while the group she was with toured the Capitol.

"Last I heard she was doing fine," Capitol Police spokesman Dan Nichols said. "She walked out of the bathroom carrying the baby."

Nichols said the Blanchard, Okla., girl, whose name was not released, went into a bathroom on the ground floor of the Senate Dirksen office building about 8 a.m. and gave birth. The group's chaperon, Don Grabbe, and Debora Brooke, a Capitol Police sergeant, helped deliver the 4-pound, 5-ounce baby boy.
