Houston, TX — A woman walking her pets Tuesday evening found a newborn alive in a plastic bag near her northwest Houston apartment complex.
The woman found the baby around 7 p.m. near the Stonegate Villas Apartments in the 11000 block of Grant Road in Cypress.
About 3 inches of the abandoned child's umbilical cord was still attached and had been cut, but not clamped, according to Sgt. Gordon Trott with the Harris County Sheriff's Office. The newborn girl was taken to Texas Children's Hospital and was in good condition, he said.
