Good Samaritans save newborn wrapped in plastic and left in Calif. dumpster

Good Samaritans save newborn wrapped in plastic and left in Calif. dumpster”

Stockton police say the baby was found a little before noon on Tuesday along the 5900 block of Village Green Drive.

As officers conducted their investigation, they found the boy's 15-year-old mother, who was also taken to the hospital.

The Stockton Police Department will be referring the case to the district attorney's office.

Authorities say a teenager accused of abandoning her newborn baby in a California dumpster in scorching heat was cited for child abuse and will be released to her parents after she leaves the hospital. The infant was immediately taken to the hospital.

Troy Cooper discovered a baby boy wrapped in plastic inside the dumpster at his Stockton, Calif., apartment complex Tuesday around 11:40 a.m. The umbilical cord was still attached.

The baby is said to be doing well and is in the custody of child protective services.

Investigators located the newborn's teenage mother near the scene, police said.

The baby was taken to Valley Children's Hospital for treatment and is doing well, according to the CHP statement.

"We're at 100 degrees temperature, so this situation could have turned into a tragedy if that baby was left in that dumpster for any amount of time", Silva was quoted by the news outlet as saying.

"Today, here in our region, it is extremely hot", Silva said. "We're calling those good Samaritans heroes".

Since being implemented in 2001, 949 infants have been legally given up through California's Safely Surrendered Baby Law.

Mothers in crisis have 72 hours after birth to make the decision to surrender and 14 days after that to change their minds.

Authorities asked that anyone with information about the incident to call the Stockton Police Department.
