Mother Left Infant at Rockwall Fire Station: Police

A woman left her infant at a Rockwall fire station on Sunday, police say.

The two-month-old girl was found at Rockwall Fire Station #4 on South Goliad Street at approximately 9 p.m. Sunday.

The baby was transported to Lake Pointe Hospital, where she was evaluated and found to be in healthy condition.

The mother of the infant later returned to the fire station, saying she was the victim of domestic violence. She said she chose to leave her daughter at the "Safe Baby" location because she didn't know what else to do, according to police.

Child Protective Services was contacted. They are working with the mother to determine a safe and secure environment for the infant.

Rockwall police are investigating the incident.

The Texas Safe Haven Law, also known as the Baby Moses law, gives parents who are unable to care for their child a safe and legal choice to leave their infant with an employee at a designated safe place. Such places include a hospital, fire station or emergency medical services (EMS) station.
