Newborn Dumped Next to Residence in Ellisville
The umbilical cord was still attached and he cried when police picked him up. The fact that it wasn't colder this morning, and that the child was probably found fairly quickly, helped save the boy. The infant was taken to Mercy Hospital in Creve Coeur and is now in stable condition. Police have no idea of his identity and are eager for any facts about him or his parents.
Those responsible for dumping the child will face criminal charges.
