Newborn Baby Girl Left in Shopping Bag in Texas Ditch

from KBTV Fox 4 News:

BEAUMONT - Investigators are searching for the mother of a four day old girl left in a shopping bag outside an apartment complex in cypress, near Houston.
A woman was walking her dog last night when the dog picked up on a scent.

The dog led the owner to a plastic bag along the fence-line,. The woman found a baby girl wrapped in a plastic Wal-Mart bag.

Paramedics rushed to the scene and began caring for the girl. The umbilical cord was still attached.

They clamped the cord, treated the child and drove her to a hospital.
She's in good condition.

Neighbors expressed shock and disbelief anyone could leave a child alone in the cold in a bag.

Ashley Gaston has reaction from a Beaumont mother and from a police officer who talks about the Baby Moses Law which allows mothers to leave their infants at a safe haven
