WHITTIER, Calif. (AP) - Octuplet mom Nadya Suleman says the
hormonal surge of pregnancy is what drove her to make a wild 911
call when one of her children wandered off last year.
In a video posted to RadarOnline.com Thursday, Suleman says she
was right to call 911 when her 5-year-old son went missing, but she
overreacted because she was pregnant with her octuplets and her
hormones were out of control.
In the Oct. 27 call released by police on Wednesday, Suleman
repeatedly told an emergency dispatcher she was going crazy and she
was going to kill herself. The boy returned unharmed.
Suleman, an unemployed single mother, has come under scrutiny
since giving birth to octuplets Jan. 26 because she already had six
other children, ages 2 to 7.
