Las Vegas, Nev. (FOX5) – The Henderson Police Department confirmed that an infant was pronounced dead at the fire station on Monday.
According to HPD, officers responded to a fire station in Henderson in response to an infant surrender at 2:00 p.m. in Henderson. The surrender was in accordance with the Safe Haven Act (NRS 432B.630), Henderson police said.
According to authorities, the newborn baby girl is recommended to be in good health.
The Henderson Police Department notes that Nevada Revised Statute 432B.630 refers to the unconditional acceptance of an abandoned infant. HPD has this to say “encourages parents who decide to drop off their newborns to do so safely and anonymously.”
“Proper protocols were followed by law enforcement and medical personnel and no laws were violated in the surrender of the baby,” Henderson police said.
