A baby was dropped off at a fire station in Dallas this week.
Wired PR News – A woman dropped off her one day old baby girl at a Dallas Fire-Rescue station this week, releasing the child to the care of firefighters. As reported by NBC DFW News, the woman knocked on the door of a station located on Walnut Hill Lane and stated she wanted to leave her baby. Dallas Fire-Rescue Captain Troy Carsten is quoted as sating of the occurrence, “We just said, ‘that’s fine, bring the baby in… She was visibly shaken — seemed to be what I consider sad — and very quiet… I appreciate that she cared enough for the baby to leave it with us.”
The baby, who is reportedly doing well, will be put into foster care according to Child Protective Services. Parents are able to leave their children at fire stations without penalty if they are under two months old and appear healthy, in accordance with Texas’ Baby Moses Law.
