Baby Left at Wantagh Fire House

A 3-hour-old baby girl was left at a Wantagh fire house on Thanksgiving morning, Nassau County police said.

Officers and medics responded to a report that a 4lb., 2oz baby was left at the fire house on Park Avenue, which is a dedicated AMT Children of Hope Baby Safe Haven drop off  location, at 11:46 a.m. Thursday, police said.

Medics checked the baby before she was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation.

The incident came about a week after a 6-week-old baby was found in a shoe box behind a Brentwood home.

Police noted that the Wantagh baby is the 3,299 child that the Safe Haven organization has received nationally since it was founded in 1998 and 15th child this year in New York State.
