BRENTWOOD, N.Y. (AP) – p
On Saturday, authorities still didn’t know who was responsible for abandoning the child two days earlier outside the house in the Suffolk County hamlet of Brentwood.
Police say a 14-year-old boy who lives there was first to hear the baby’s cries. He found her in the shoebox wrapped in a blanket, with a bottle of milk.
The teenager’s family called police.
The baby was taken to a nearby hospital where doctors say she’s in good health.
Authorities notifed Child Protective Services.
