PORT ST. LUCIE (AP) - A caller alerted St. Lucie County Fire District officials that a newborn baby was inside a bag left in front of the building.
The call came in as firefighter Stephen Beane arrived at work Thursday morning.
Beane found the baby girl, wrapped in towels and plastic bags, along with a note indicating she was born at 7:15 a.m. Thursday.
The baby was taken to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center in Fort Pierce where Beane said she appeared to be in "pretty good health."
The Department of Families and Children says the infant will be turned over to the Children's Home Society for adoption.
Under the state's Safe Haven Law, parents can leave newborns at a hospital, fire station or emergency medical facility within seven days of birth without penalty.
