Police: Baby girl found in shoebox outside Long Island home

BRENTWOOD, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a 6-week-old baby girl was left in a shoebox on the porch of a Long Island home.

On Saturday, authorities still didn’t know who was responsible for abandoning the child two days earlier outside the house in the Suffolk County hamlet of Brentwood.

Police say a 14-year-old boy who lives there was first to hear the baby’s cries. He found her in the shoebox wrapped in a blanket, with a bottle of milk.

The teenager’s family called police.

The baby was taken to a nearby hospital where doctors say she’s in good health.

Authorities notifed Child Protective Services.
