Firefighters find newborn dead in bag

CHICAGO (WJW) - Chicago authorities investigating firefighters found a newborn boy dead in a bag outside their fire station.

According to the Chicago Police Department, the baby was found in a bag around noon. 5 Saturday morning.

Fox News reports that firefighters had gone outside to shovel snow and found the bag underneath.

The Chicago Tribune reports that the person who left the newborn was not trying to grab anyone at the fire station.

Later in the day, the Chicago Fire Department tweeted a reminder on Illinois' Safe Haven Law, intended to prevent such things from happening.

Illinois' Safe Haven Act is a safe way for parents who make the difficult choice of abandoning a newborn for adoption. Handing over a newborn to a firefighter or paramedics directly at a firehouse can help facilitate the safest outcome. No questions asked and no judgment.

The forensic doctor and three detectives are investigating, according to Chicago police.
