Anne Arundel County police have found the person who left a newborn baby in a wooded area in Glen Burnie.
Police responded to the 600 block of Greenway Road near Pine Terrace after receiving a call around 6:15 a.m. Wednesday reporting that a newborn infant was left on its own, said Anne Arundel County police spokesman Marc Limansky.
“It was unclothed, the umbilical cord was still attached. It looks like a very new birth. The infant was transported to an area hospital and is expected to survive,” he said, adding that it was suffering from some injuries due to being in contact with some bushes.
The mother of the child was identified Wednesday and was provided medical treatment and access to crisis intervention and other county resources, according to police. The infant is healthy and doing well.
