AUBURN, Wash. (AP) - A police officer took a 14-month-old girl to a hospital after finding her at a homeless camp in a Seattle suburb.

KOMO-TV reports (https://goo.gl/lUyeXP ) Auburn police officer Andrew Lindgren found the girl while responding to a domestic violence call Wednesday morning.

The officer said the toddler was surrounded by drug paraphernalia and filth in the camp along the Green River in Auburn.

Police say Lindgren took the girl to a hospital to make sure she was OK before state officials with Child Protective Services picked her up.

Auburn is about 26 miles south of Seattle.
