A newborn boy was dropped off Tuesday morning at a fire station in Cañon City under the Colorado Safe Haven law.
The boy, who is less than 3 days old, was dropped off at about 8:30 a.m. by his father, according to police.
The newborn, in good health, was taken to a local hospital and is now in custody of the Fremont County Department of Human Services, said Sgt. Steven Huskey.
The safe haven law, enacted in 2000, permits parents to anonymously surrender a newborn, no older than 3 days, at a fire station or hospital.
Freemont County officials know the identity of the boy’s parents and human services staff will be in touch with them.
