Mother surrenders her baby at hospital
GLENDALE — A woman surrendered her 2-day-old infant Friday at a Glendale hospital, health officials announced.
As a part of the Los Angeles County's Safe Surrender program, the woman gave up her baby boy, who was born June 30, to the hospital, county public health officials said. The name of the hospital was not disclosed, nor was the woman's identity.
"This case could have ended in tragedy, but because of the Safe Surrender Program, this baby boy has a long life ahead of him," Supervisor Don Knabe said in a statement. "I am happy this mother made the right choice for her baby."
