New York City, NY – Jonah Hill was caught by TMZ snapping photos of afterbirth left behind when a woman sitting on a bench in the park gave birth. NYC first responders loaded the woman giving birth and her new baby safely into an emergency squad but did not take time to clean up the bloody mess left behind.
Jonah Hill decided the highly unusual encounter was picture worthy and stopped at the park bench to take cell phone photos of pigeons feasting upon the placenta.
A TMZ photographer just happened to be in the park about the same time as the unknown woman giving birth on the park bench. Once the new mommy was attended to by New York City emergency workers and on the way to the hospital, the TMZ photographer then noticed Jonah Hill lingering about by the bloody afterbirth.
The celebrity journalist attempted to talk to Jonah Hill about taking photos of the pregnant woman’s afterbirth being eaten by birds in the park. According to TMZ, Hill seemed a bit embarrassed about being caught taking photos of the bloody placenta and did not stick around to chat with the roving reporter.
The comedic actor was strolling with an unknown female friend, who walked away quickly to keep up with Hill, who reportedly made a “hasty exit” after TMZ took his photo.
“Craziest thing I’ve ever seen. A woman gave birth next to me in a park. I took a picture of the placenta and TMZ caught me. Embarrassing,” – Jonah Hill tweeted.
