Baby boy abandoned at Chicago Lawn firehouse

A 3 week old baby was dropped off at a Chicago Lawn fire station tonight.

The Fire Dept reports two women came to the door just before 5 p.m. and dropped off the baby boy.

He was taken to the hospital and is in good condition.

The baby was given critical attention,” Deputy district chief Jim Mungovan said.  “The ambulance was here at the house when they first arrived. The baby was in good condition and was transported to Holy Cross Hospital.”

“I’m happy for the child that it was in good medical condition and was able to receive even more proper medical care,” he said.

    Well at least the women had some brains where they dropped off the little ones at a fire station and not a trash dumpster. They did forget to say what the race was. Just wondering.

    These stories need to be reported differently because this is EXACTLY how the safe haven law is supposed to be used. Instead of saying "Baby Abandoned" a better headline would be "Baby Turned Over Safely at Designated Safe Haven" or "A Safe Haven Law Success Story". Negative sounding headlines will not encourage those who are contemplating getting rid of their babies by illegal methods.

      You are so right. They should also post these stories any time a baby has been turned over to a safe haven. Maybe more mothers would do the right thing. You rarely ever hear of this. I wonder how many baby's are turned over to a safe place. I would love to know.

    The baby was not abandoned.. the baby was given to the firemen. I can't imagine the pain the mother felt having to give her child up. What a selfless act of love and courage! I wish more women would do this rather than dump or kill their children.
