Arizona has a safe haven law that allows a mother to leave a newborn baby at fire departments or hospitals without fear of criminal charges. Doing so will prevent a person from facing criminal prosecution, officials added.

"There's a certain amount of frustration that all they had to do was walk 50 feet away to the fire station, give us the child, no questions asked".

Nies said his responding crews believed the baby had been born 1 to 3 hours before she was found.

For proponents of safe haven laws, their benefit is clear: They prevent parents who are unable to care for their children but afraid of arrest to hand them off to the state instead of abandoning them in risky situations.
