Baby Found At Fire Station Continues To Recover
A newborn baby girl remains hospitalized after she was found outside a Yakima fire station last Thursday.
The child was discovered wrapped in towels and crying in a box by a door at Station 92.
Firefighters say it appears the baby had been left outside the station at 7702 Tieton Drive for at least an hour and was cold. Her umbilical cord was clamped with a bobby pin.
The crew went into action, checked the baby's vitals, cleaned her up and began warming her in dry warm towels until an ambulance arrived.
The baby was transported to a local hospital and is in good condition. Doctors say, however, that if the baby would have been outside for another 30 minutes the outcome might have been tragic.
