UPPER DARBY, Pa. (AP) – Police say an hours-old newborn found abandoned on the porch of a home in a Philadelphia suburb is doing OK.
The baby girl was discovered wrapped in a blanket when she was discovered on Tuesday afternoon, when temperatures were in the mid-90s.
Upper Darby police tweeted a photo of the baby and asked for help locating the parents.
Police said under Pennsylvania law, a child may be left in the care of a hospital or police officer without criminal liability, as long as the child is no older than 28 days and is unharmed.
The baby is resting at a hospital and police have been swamped with calls from people asking how to adopt the child.
