Baby Found On Beach In Hawaii
Police in Honolulu, Hawaii are searching for whoever left a newborn baby on a beach.
The full-term 8-pound baby girl is doing well and taking formula at a Honolulu hospital.
The baby was found naked in the sand just a few minutes after a woman heard some adults screaming on the beach, then moments later heard the baby crying. She walked toward the sound of the baby and found it.
Police are treating it as a case of child endangerment and child abandonment. And this in a state that has a baby safe haven law. The law provides immunity from prosecution for leaving an unharmed baby at any police station, fire department or hospital within 72 hours of birth.
Luckily for this unwanted baby girl, it resulted in a good outcome. For too many babies, it does not.
