Colorado Springs told the press that the newborn girl was found in (or near) a dumpster at the Shadow Grove apartment complex. The infant was rushed to Memorial Hospital Central, where she is reported to be in “stable condition,” Lt. Howard Black confirmed to The Global Dispatch.

The details are being pieced together as the police are questioning residents of the gated complex is just west of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.

Police say the girl is less than one month old and the parents have not yet been found. She had hew “newly-cut umbilical cord and was wrapped in an adult’s hospital gown,” says the report.

Two women discovered the baby, hearing it crying.

CSPD’s Child Abuse Unit is responding to this investigation.

Jennifer Brown, spokeswoman for the El Paso County Department of Human Services, told the Colorado Gazette that generally abandoned babies are placed in DHS custody. The baby likely will go into foster care when she’s released from the hospital.
