A NEWBORN baby girl was turned over to a Los Angeles fire station on Christmas Eve under California’s Safe Haven Law, KTLA reported on Saturday.
The law allows parents or guardians to give up a child at certain locations, including fire stations and hospitals, and face no consequences.
The law was created as an alternative to parents abandoning babies they cannot care for and want to give up for adoption.
Fire officials said the little girl, who they nicknamed Noel, appeared to be healthy and well-fed.
She was taken to a nearby hospital for a checkup and was later placed in custody with the Department of Children and Family Services.
