WKMG News 6 Orlando is reporting that a newborn baby has been found abandoned in a Converse shoe box that had been left outside an Orange County apartment complex.

According to the report, Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies are saying that the baby appeared to be in good condition.

WKMG News 6 further reports that an apartment complex resident (Sarah Nazario) told Deputies that she opened her front door and found the baby lying there in the shoe box.

Nazario is quoted as saying:

“He was just a brand new baby. I opened my door, and I saw the baby. I saw him in a box. His little foot was sticking out of the box. I saw him wiggle his foot — it’s a real baby. He’s alive, I need to do something about it, so that’s when I called 911.”

Under Florida’s Safe Haven Law, anyone can bring an unwanted newborn to any hospital or fire station with no questions asked and without facing criminal charges. And thank goodness the mother of this baby did leave it where she thought it was safer.
