Baby Abandoned At Fire Station

(CBS) – An infant was abandoned at a West Englewood firehouse Monday, the Chicago Fire Department said.

The 3-week-old boy was left at Engine 101 at 2236 W. 69th St. shortly before 5 p.m., and he was transported in good condition to Holy Cross Hospital.

Two women had dropped off the infant and said they could no longer care for him, Deputy Fire Chief Jim Mungovan told reporters.

As part of the Illinois “Safe Haven” law, any parent who feels they cannot care for their newborn baby can take the child to specific locations.

That includes fire departments, hospitals or a police station.
