PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — An investigation is underway after a baby was found alive in a dumpster in suburban Boca Raton on Wednesday morning.
According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, two people were walking in an apartment complex near Boca Entrada Blvd. around 9 a.m., and heard what sounded like a baby crying.
That's when they found a newborn baby girl alive in a dumpster, PBSO says.
The child was taken to the hospital and is expected to survive.
Detectives with PBSO's Special Investigations Division were seen going door-to-door at the apartment complex Wednesday afternoon, asking neighbors if they knew anything about the incident.
One neighbor told Scripps station WPTV in West Palm Beach that a maintenance worker found the baby girl in the dumpster.
If you know who abandoned the baby there, call Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County at 1-800-458-TIPS.
