SAN MARCOS - Add one more to the number of children in the State's custody after the raid on the polygamist compound in Eldorado.

In a San Marcos hospital, a teen member of the sect gave birth while child welfare officials and state troopers stood guard outside.

It's not clear right now what will happen to the baby or the mother who is reported to be a ward of the state.

She is one of the 463 children taken into state custody in the April third raid on the Eldorado compound.

Those children are now scattered across the state in foster care facilities.
