Firefighters in Chicago are reporting that they discovered a dead infant inside of a duffel bag near a fire station.
The discovery was made around 5 a.m. Monday when officials went outside to begin shoveling snow. According to the report, the bag was found under the snow.
All 50 states have a “Safe Haven” law that allows parents to drop off infants at designated locations but it requires the person dropping off the child, to hand the child over to staff member.
“If the baby was placed there alive, that baby froze to death,” Dawn Geras, of the Save Abandoned Babies Foundation, told local media. “It’s Chicago. It gets cold at night. You can’t leave a baby out to the elements.”
Authorities are still investigating the situation and say that they have no suspects at this time.
