Seymour police are investigating an incident where an infant was left in a bag on the citys southeast side, authorities report.
A person walking their dog called police at 3:49 p.m. and reported they found the infant in the 600 block of South Jackson Park Drive, according to a news release from Detective Sgt. C.J. Foster.
The infant was found along a fence row about 20 yards from the roadway, police said.
Officers were called to the scene and determined the baby was still alive. It was taken for an examination at Schneck Medical Center in Seymour and was determined to be healthy.
Foster wrote in a news release that the department wants to remind residents that the city has a Safe Haven Baby Box at Seymour Fire Station 3, 605 Meadowbrook Drive. It became available to residents in June.
The box allows babies to be surrendered, and first responders will be notified immediately. The box can only be opened by medical personnel, Foster said.
No one has been arrested at this time, and the incident remains under investigation.
A true miracle indeed.
Attempted murder of an infant?
Article is kinda cavalier about the crime
Journalists are liberaks, for the most part........
Seems routine for folks to just trash the gold of their offspring.
This one happened just a few weeks ago as well. People are evil!
These are likely not really folks doing this
More likely children who got pregnant that are dumping babies
Just a hunch, Im not excusing them but they dont know what they are doing same as a 25 year old woman would or should
It should not be hard to find the perp.
Send them to prison.
I hear you, but it’s still murder and they should be thrown in prison for it.
These innocent babies did nothing to deserve such evil treatment.
Sometimes I wonder what’s taking God so long.
Really? Then abortionists should certainly be imprisoned, especially the late term practitioners, but they have government approval.
For a youngster not caring for her own young, prison is NOT the answer. Society seems to approve of infanticide, why would a kid know this WAS wrong?
Thank you Lord, a life saved.
If you find out, please let us know.
WTF is wrong with people? All you have to do is take the baby to a Fire Station or a church. There are literally thousands of couples that would adopt. The mind boggles.
But it’s all the consequence of the cheapening of life by the godless.
Yep, here in Florida there are ‘rescue’ stations just about everywhere.............
