Baby found abandoned at hospital entrance

Date Posted: 2011-06-23

A newborn baby has been discovered abandoned at the back entrance to a local Okinawa hospital, and is now receiving treatment.

Urasoe City Police say the baby, thought to be about ten days old, was found by a staff worker at a Urasoe City medical facility on Monday. The baby was immediately handed over to the Okinawa Prefectural Central Child Consultation Center, and has been since transferred to a Naha City hospital for monitoring her condition.

Investigators say that the baby seems to have been born in a hospital because her umbilical cord was properly cared for. Urasoe City Police investigators estimate that the baby was left at the entrance sometime between 6:30 and 8:20 a.m. on June 20th, based on interviews with people who had passed the location that morning.
