Baby Left At South Florida Fire Station

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Department of Children and Families is taking care of a baby boy who was left outside a South Florida fire station.

Davie police say the little boy, believed to be between four and eight months old, was found Thursday afternoon. The child was taken to a hospital to be checked out and turned over to the child protection agency.

Doctors say the child is healthy.

The baby was left around 3:30 p.m. Florida’s Safe Haven law allows parents to drop babies at designated places, such as a fire station, with no fear of prosecution.

Police haven’t released additional details about the incident. But they are seeking information to help them identify the child. Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 954-493-TIPS.
