A newborn baby girl was found outside of a North Philadelphia daycare Wednesday morning. According to reports, she was found in a box, wrapped in a blanket and robe, outside the Rainbow Daycare.
A neighborhood handyman found her after he heard crying. Police believe she was in the box for several hours.
According to police, the baby is five-pounds, five-ounces and her umbilical cord was still attached. Investigators believe she is either Hispanic or a light-skinned Black. Although in “good condition,” she was taken to St. Christopher´s Hospital in Hunting Park. It is not clear whether she was born at home or in a hospital.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Pennsylvania is one of 49 states with “Baby Moses laws” or infant safe haven laws, allowing parents to anonymously “relinquish their infants to a hospital or health-care facility.” In Pennsylvania, the child can be no more than 28 days old.
