Infant surrendered under safe haven at TFD station

TUCSON – A newborn baby was left at a Tucson Fire Department station on Monday.

Officials say the baby was about 12-hours-old when crews located the baby in the Safe Haven box. The baby, who was evaluated by paramedics, was reportedly in good condition.

The baby was then transported to a local hospital.

The Arizona Safe Haven Law allows for people to leave an unharmed newborn infant, 72 hours old or younger, with a Safe Haven provider. Every Tucson Fire station is a Safe Haven location.

Correction: It was first reported the baby was left in a baby box. According to TFD, the baby was handed to one of the personnel of the station.
