Safe Haven Baby


Friday afternoon firefighters in Los AngelesĀ  received a very special package. A 6-hour-old baby girl wrapped snugly in a blanket was delivered to their station. The firefighters nicknamed her Noel. The 27-year-old Mother gave up the child under California's Safe Haven law.
The nearly decade-old Safe Haven Law in California allows parents to give up babies up to three days old at fire stations, hospitals and other locations without fear of prosecution if there are no signs of abuse.

She was the sixth child surrendered in Los Angeles County in 2010 and the 82nd since the Safely Surrendered Baby Law was passed nine years ago, according to county statistics.
