INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Police said a newborn baby was found alive in a trash can inside of a business on the Indianapolis’ west side on Friday night.
According to IMPD officials, police received a call from employees at Carrier Corporation, on the corner of W. Morris Street and Girls School Road, Friday night around 8:15 p.m.
They said they found a baby inside of a trash can inside of a bathroom in the building.
Police said the baby was taken to Riley in critical condition. The baby was later upgraded to good condition, according to IMPD.
Officers were not sure what the baby’s gender was as of Friday night.
