Baby left at Indianapolis fire station under safe haven law
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities say a baby has been brought to an Indianapolis fire station under Indiana’s safe haven law for the second time this month.
A news release from the Indianapolis Fire Department says a woman brought a 30-day-old baby boy to a station Friday morning and asked to give custody of the child to Child Protective Services. The release says the baby was clean, fed, content and uninjured, and that all requirements were met under the safe haven law.
The department says the woman also left supplies for the baby before she left.
According to the department, a man dropped off a newborn boy at an Indianapolis fire station earlier this month.
The safe haven law allows adults to anonymously drop off an unwanted infant at a hospital, fire station or police station.
