Vigil Honors Sacramento Teen Who Died Giving Birth
Posted September 12th, 2013 @ 3:16pm by KFBK News

SACRAMENTO -- A somber vigil was held to remember a Sacramento teen who died alone while giving birth in her college dorm room.

Ayaanah Gibson, 19, was a student at Benedict College in Columbia, South Carolina. She avoided any assistance and gave birth to a stillborn baby earlier this month.

Authorities say there are no indications of foul play, and point out that Gibson probably would have survived with the proper medical care. Family and friends gathered for the vigil last night at Sacramento Charter High School, where she had been a student.
