Crying Alerts Passerby to Baby Boy Left Outside Detroit Medical Clinic

The sound of crying led police to a baby boy abandoned outside a Detroit medical clinic Wednesday morning.

Police said a person heard the crying outside Riverview Medical Office, a former hospital, and called police, Fox 2 reported.

“My officers went and purchased diapers for the baby and then we got the baby to the hospital,” said Capt. Conway Petty, who said the boy was examined at Children’s Hospital and found to be in good shape.

In addition to the car seat, a bag was left with the infant.

“While they were trying to find diapers they went through the bag and there was a wristband that identified the baby,” Petty said.

After he was checked out at the hospital, he was placed with a family member while officers and Child Protective Services look for the mother.

“We are trying to contact the mother to find out what her situation was and if there is something we can do to help her,” Petty said.
