Woman finds infant inside furniture dumped in Chicago alley

CHICAGO (AP) — Authorities say a newborn boy is in good condition after being found Wednesday morning inside a drawer of an apparently discarded dresser in a Chicago alley.

Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford says paramedics were called about 8 a.m. Wednesday by a person who found the newborn inside the dresser drawer.

He told the Chicago Tribune that the child is in good condition at a hospital. Trash pickup was underway Wednesday in the area where the infant was found, but it wasn’t clear if the dresser was close enough to the curb that it would have been hauled away by crews.
