Live Newborn Found in Texas Dumpster

An apartment tenant found a newborn baby in a dumpster Saturday morning. She was taking out her garbage when she heard crying and called 911 soon afterward. When police arrived, EMS personnel had to perform CPR to revive the baby boy. The child was brought to a nearby hospital, where he appears to be healthy. Staff estimated that he wasn't even a day old.

Texas has numerous locations where babies can be dropped off with no questions asked. Children 60 days or younger can be left at fire stations and hospitals if a parent feels as though they can't provide, and there are no consequences for doing so. Police are attempting to track down the parents of this child in order to establish a medical record. Click here for more.
