Indiana Safe Haven Law
The Indiana Safe Haven Law was passed 14 years ago to prevent similar circumstances from happening.
The law came about after someone dropped off a newborn in front of Community North Hospital in 2000, just yards from the entrance.
That baby died before being found by hospital employees.
According to the law, a parent, family member, friend, minister or priest, social worker or any responsible adult may give up custody of a baby less than 30 days old to a hospital emergency room, fire station or police station in Indiana.
