Woman leaves baby at UMC under Safe Haven law

University Medical Center discharged a healthy female newborn Wednesday who was left at the hospital over the weekend under the state’s Safe Haven law, said Katie Riley, a spokeswoman for the hospital.

It allows an individual to abandon a newborn, no questions asked, at fire stations, local hospitals and certain other locations without penalty.

The mother of the child is not required to provide information about the baby and can remain anonymous.

The baby is the seventh the hospital has received since 2001, Riley said.

No details about the infant or to whom she was released were provided by the hospital.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
