A healthy, newborn baby with the umbilical cord still attached was found abandoned in a stroller on a Los Angeles street on Tuesday.
KNBC-TV reports local residents saw the stroller near a church south of downtown Monday night but thought it was empty. Police were called about 1 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, according to MyFoxLA.com.
Father David Matz told KTTV the same person who called the police about the baby was the same person who came to him the night before asking for advice. Matz didn’t give any other details about the conversation.
Police say the baby was examined at a hospital and is in good condition.
Los Angeles County's "Safe Surrender" law allows a parent or guardian to give up an infant at a hospital or fire station if the child is no more than three days old and shows no signs of abuse.
