CHICAGO (CBS) — Workers at a Calumet City fast-food restaurant made a horrifying discovery on Thursday: the body of newborn girl in the bathroom.
Employees at the Popeye’s Chicken, 4 Sibley Blvd., found the full-term newborn in the women’s bathroom.
The infant was taken to the hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
So far, there is no information about the baby’s parents.
Illinois has a “Safe Haven” law that allows parents to relinquish newborns — babies 30 days old or younger — at specified locations, such as staffed emergency rooms, police stations and firehouses.
