On June 9th, 2017, firefighters at Station 21 in Houston were taking part in a district training at 9:30 a.m when they heard the cries of a baby. The group found a one-year-old in a car seat with cereal and a diaper bag.
Luckily, the child was in good health before he was taken to Texas Children’s Hospital. There were no signs of abuse on the child and the investigation is still in the early stages.
According to the hospital, the baby is at the appropriate height and weight for his age which leads Child Protective Services (CPS) to believe that he was well taken care of. Once cleared by doctors he will be placed in foster care.
CPS will be working with local law enforcement in hopes of tracking down the child’s parents or other family members who might want to look after him.
“At this point, if we cannot find his family members then we would make a public plea,” Tejal Patel of CPS said. “We are still in the very early stages of our investigation so we will be talking with him to get basic information. You know, getting his name for example and finding out does he know his mom’s name.”
