LOS ANGELES (AP) - A healthy baby with the umbilical cord still attached has been found abandoned in a stroller on a Los Angeles street.

KNBC-TV (https://bit.ly/1hizX3Z ) says local residents saw the stroller near a church south of downtown Monday night but thought it was empty. Police were only called Tuesday afternoon.

Police say the baby was examined at a hospital and is in good condition.

Investigators will try to find the mother.

Los Angeles County’s “Safe Surrender” law allows a parent or guardian to give up an infant at a hospital or fire station if the child is no more than three days old and shows no signs of abuse.
