Newborn baby with umbilical cord still attached found abandoned in a parking lot

A baby was found abandoned in a parking lot in Arizona, even when the state’s law permits a parent to leave a baby born within 72 hours at the nearest fire department station or hospital without any criminal charges. Then why did the mother chose to abandon the baby?

According to the Tempe Police statement, a passerby found an abandoned baby girl  in a Jonas brothers-themed bag at a parking lot in Tempe. The newborn’s umbilical cord was still attached.

The statement released on June 5 afternoon said that the passerby brought the baby to a nearby grocery store at about 7.45pm and the store manager informed the police.

“This is a tragic situation but we’re thankful that the baby was found healthy. Everyone involved reacted swiftly with the needs of the child as the top priority,” Ashley Shick, the store’s spokesperson said.

The police said the baby, wrapped in a blanket, was abandoned in the warm weather of 99 degrees about three hours after being born.

The police is asking the public to provide more information on the baby and reminded them about the Safe Haven law in place where it decriminalizes a parent when the baby born within 72 hours is dropped off at the hospital or fire department station.

“We’ll take custody as long as the parent will not return for the child,” the police said.
