TUCSON, Ariz. -- A newborn baby was surrendered under the Safe Haven law at a Tucson Fire station, according to TFD.

Fire officials say the baby was an estimated 12 hours old and brought between 5 and 6 p.m. Monday. TFD says paramedics evaluated the baby, who is in good condition. The newborn was taken to a local hospital.

The Arizona Safe Haven Law allows an unharmed newborn infant, 72-hours-old or younger, to be left with a Safe Haven provider. Providers include on-duty firefighters, fire stations, on-duty EMT and paramedics and health care institutions.
