DENVER (AP) - Denver police are trying to determine who left a newborn boy in a bathroom sink at a church in northwest Denver.
Children attending a Friday night service at St. Dominic church found the baby wrapped in a T-shirt. The Rev. Clint Honokomp says no one knows who the mother could be.
The baby was taken to a hospital. Police spokeswoman Leslie Branch-Wise says doctors estimate the baby was left at the church within four hours of birth.
Police consider the baby to be abandoned. It is not a crime in Colorado to leave a baby with a fire station or at a hospital within three days of birth, but churches are not included as safe havens under state law.
