Baby girl found on Oahu beach, authorities say

Authorities are investigating why a baby girl was found abandoned on a Hawaii beach hours after birth.

State Department of Human Services Director Patricia McManaman says the newborn was abandoned immediately after birth.

Police say a woman parked at Sandy Beach in east Honolulu sometime between 11 p.m. Sunday and midnight heard several people screaming. A few minutes later the screaming stopped and the woman heard a baby crying.

She walked toward the ocean and saw an infant on the sand. The woman took the baby to a hospital. Police are investigating the case as endangering the welfare of a minor and child abandonment.

McManaman says the baby was born full term and was found naked. She says the 8-pound newborn is doing well and drinking formula at a hospital.
