Baby Boy Abandoned At Burger King In Queens

A baby boy was abandoned in a Burger King located in the Springfield Gardens neighborhood of Queens on Tuesday.

Police said the boy is about four to six months old and was left around 11PM.

The boy was taken to Jamaica Hospital and is reportedly in fine condition.

As of Wednesday, police officials said they did not have information on the identity of the boy's mother or why he was left.

A similar incident occurred in Chicago suburb when a newborn baby was found abandoned in a shopping bag. The girl was also said to be in good condition.

Late November, police uncovered the body of a newborn baby girl displaced in a garbage can in Washington Heights. Investigators soon traced the baby back to mother Yaribely Almonte and charged her with self-abortion in the first degree.
