UMC releases healthy baby girl left under Safe Haven

Citizen Staff Writer

Abandoned over weekend

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



Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
